Bees and Derby players show support for racial equality

Players from both sides take a knee at kick-off of game on Saturday

13 July 2020

Brentford FC reiterated its support for racial equality before the win over Derby County on Saturday. Football has continued to show solidarity against racial discrimination in recent weeks and Brentford players and staff took part at the weekend, as they have done throughout. Players from both teams took a knee for a short period before kick-off and Brentford players wore t-shirts to share our #BeeTogether message, the Club's policy on diversity and inclusion, as they are doing at all games.

The demonstration from the players follows a statement further outlining our position on Bee Together. That can be seen here. The Club has also released a new video reiterating our stand against racism and discrimination. Under the #BeeTogether banner, the video features Brentford players, fans and staff, and stresses the importance the Club places on togetherness and unity. See it here.
