Brentford continue support for racial equality

Bees players join Preston's in taking a knee before kick-off on Wednesday

17 July 2020

Brentford FC reiterated its support for racial equality before they faced Preston North End earlier this week. 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 players' action follow a statement from the Club earlier this summer further outlining our position on Bee Together. That can be seen here. The Club has also released an updated 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.
