Love Football Hate Racism will be hosting a musical event at Dulwich Hamlet next month to bring football fans together against racism and discrimination.

Taking place at Champion Hill on Friday 8th March, the bill includes south London ska band The Estimators and DJ Cello – their sets will be interspersed with stage appearances from figures who have led the movement against racism in football.

These include Paul Canoville the first black player to play for Chelsea and Anwar Uddin, the first British Asian footballer to play professionally in the UK and now leading the Fans for Diversity campaign.

Fans are being encouraged to wear their club colours to the gig showing a united face against racism that transcends rivalries.

The two different groups have created a new adaptation on the Love Music Hate Racism logo for the event and a limited run of t-shirts will be made. The first 100 people to buy a ticket for the event will get a free t-shirt with their ticket, priced at £8 plus booking fee.

Zak Cochrane from organisers Love Music Hate Racism said: “Football and music share a lot in common, they both have a tremendous unifying potential – an ability to bring people from all walks of life together. But it’s not automatic that this will happen.

“That is why it is so important that there are events like the gig on the 8th March which is bringing together football and music lovers against racism and division.”

Anwar Uddin of Fans for Diversity added: “There is so much great work being done by football fans across the country who are working towards positive change. It’s great that the Fans for Diversity campaign can highlight and support that activity.”
