Blues back Football v Homophobia

5 March 2014

Wanderers are proud to be supporting Football v Homophobia at Saturday’s game against Hartlepool United (k.o 3pm).

The squad will be warming up in branded t-shirts to highlight the initiative, and the club are delighted to carry on raising awareness after becoming the first football club to sign the Government Charter for Action, tackling homophobia and transphobia in the sport, back in October 2011.


Matt Bloomfield, who signed the charter on behalf of the Chairboys, said: “It’s great news that the club are once again helping to tackle discrimination in the game.

“It’s an initiative that I’m very proud to be a part of and it was an honour for me to sign the charter for the club a couple of years ago.

“Discrimination of any sort has no place in sport or society, and everyone has the right to enjoy watching football.”

There are three simple things you can do to support Football v Homophobia: 

1. Follow FvH and promote them on social media 

2. Take some simple actions to make a difference through their website – www.footballvhomophobia.com. 

3. Report any incidences of homophobic language at football. To a nearby steward, the police, a club official, or the referee or your County Football Association at a grassroots game, or contact Kick it Out.
