Q&A with Kick It Out Ambassador Earl Barrett

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

The issue of racism has been brought back into the spotlight in the past week with investigations into allegations of racist comments made by Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Chelsea’s John Terry. All of this is occurring against the backdrop of Kick It Out’s ‘One Game, One Community’ weeks of action, which run until the 31st October.

Throughout the weeks of action, professional clubs have been making their own contribution by holding matchday events at their dedicated ‘One Game, One Community‘ weeks of action fixture. At grass roots level, a number of thought leadership seminars, football tournaments and fan and community led activity has also taken place.

As part of the FSF’s contribution to One Game, One Community, we’ve arranged a Q&A with Kick It Out ambassador and former Oldham, Aston Villa and Everton defender Earl Barrett.

We’d like to know what questions you’d like to put to Earl – whether it’s finding out his views on the recent controversies, his experiences of racism in the game, how he got involved with Kick It Out or what it was like to pick up his first England cap.

We’d like you to submit your questions by Monday 31st October at the latest – please send them in by email to [email protected], alternatively you can tweet them (if that’s your thing) to @the_fsf, or leave them on our Facebook page.
