Football v Homophobia 2019

We are once again teaming up with Football v Homophobia to tackle homophobia and transphobia in football and make it truly a game for everyone. 

February 2019 is Surrey FA’s Football V Homophobia month of action!

43% of lesbian, gay or bisexual players have heard anti-gay abuse whilst playing grassroots football, so we’re teaming up with Football V Homophobia to tackle homophobia and transphobia in football and to make it truly the game for everyone.

 Football v Homophobia exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football.

As an international initiative FvH engages in campaigning, education, advice and guidance, research, policy consultation and capacity building to:

  • Make existing football structures safe, welcoming and inclusive for LGBTI people
  • Create opportunities and promote engagement of LGBTI people in football at all levels and in all forms
  • Improve the representation and visibility of LGBTI people throughout football
  • To realise the potential of football in society as a tool to create positive change

To help raise awareness, Surrey FA have recruited a number of football clubs in Surrey who will support the cause by wearing Football v Homophobia shirts to warm up in during a dedicated FvH match, to show their support for the campaign. We have also chosen FvH as the dedicated charity for our 'Office Olympics' event in February. You can view the fixtures which have currently been confirmed below.
