Watch now – the Fans for Diversity series

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

The Fans For Diversity campaign has released a four-part mini-documentary series featuring four supporters groups across the country to highlighting the diversity of fanbases in English football.

The series looks at what’s going on at Crawley Town Disabled Supporters Association, Derby County’s Punjabi Rams, Leicester City’s LGBT supporters group Foxes Pride, and Manchester City Women’s Official Supporters Club.

Each film follows them for their matchday routine and talks to supporters about barriers they’ve faced following their club over the years.

Fans for Diversity campaign manager Anwar Uddin said: “I think the documentary series proves that the situation is changing for the better and supporters feel more confident being themselves at a football game.

“But we can’t be complacent – as people will see in the films, supporters still face discrimination at football matches and it’s important they know how they can report those incidents.”

The Fans for Diversity Series:

1) Crawley Town Disabled Supporters’ Association

2) The Punjabi Rams

3) Foxes Pride

4) Manchester City Women’s Official Supporters Group

The Fans For Diversity campaign provides funding for supporters who want to launch an event or initiative that celebrates diversity. Apply for the Fans For Diversity Fund here or contact Anwar Uddin on anwar.uddin@fsf.org.uk for more information.
