Wycombe game to be our dedicated Football v Homophobia match

20 February 2023

We will join the rest of the EFL in taking a stand against homophobia by dedicating our game at home to Wycombe Wanderers to the Football v Homophobia campaign.

The game, which takes place on Saturday 25th February at Montgomery Waters Meadow, is designed to raise awareness and combat homophobia in football.

The Football v Homophobia campaign was launched to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football. It is an international initiative that engages in campaigning, education, advice and guidance, research, policy consultation and capacity building to make existing football structures safe, welcome and inclusive for LGBTI people.

The campaign also creates opportunities and promotes engagement of LGBTI people in football at all levels and in all forms, improve the representation and visibility of LGBTI people throughout football and to realise the potential of football in society as a tool to create positive change.

If you witness any behaviour during a game, like anti-gay chanting and hateful or prejudiced language, speak to a nearby steward, the police, a club official, or contact the FA by telephone 0800 085 0508 or email: footballforall@TheFA.com.

You can also report via the Kick it Out website: www.kickitout.org, via email at info@kickitout.org, the Kick It Out mobile app, which is free to download, or telephone Kick it Out on 0800 169 9414.

Alternatively, report incidents via Facebook/KickitOutOfficial or Twitter @KickitOut. You can follow FVH on Facebook or Twitter: @FvHtweets or visit the Website: www.footballvhomophobia.com.

Alternatively, Shrewsbury Town have a dedicated matchday hotline. Simply text 07884992266 to report any form of discrimination within the stadium.
