As football celebrates the Kick It Out week of action, Brentford FC back an end to racism and discrimination in football

5 April 2019

Brentford will join the 71 other EFL clubs to support Kick It Out’s Week of Action, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to equality and inclusion across all areas of the game. The campaign runs from 30 March to 7 April and is also supporting the Premier League’s No Room for Racism messaging.  Following recent high-profile incidents of discrimination, it is important that football responds at this challenging time, with the League and all 72 clubs again reiterating that there is absolutely no place for racism in football or society. 

Matches played during the Week of Action will feature the captains wearing Kick It Out armbands and a pennant exchange as well as the EFL and its Clubs supporting the anti-discrimination message across their channels. Brentford will be doing this when Derby County visit Griffin Park tomorrow, Saturday 6 April, and Bees players also took part in activity at the games against Wigan Athletic and Swansea City. The Club also hosted an event last night where there was a discussion on racism and discrimination in football. The video below was shown at that event.

Join us tomorrow and help us celebrated the Kick It Out week of action. Ticket availability is limited so book now to avoid missing out. This weekend, we expect lots of families to join us at our Fan Zone from 12pm.
