Kick It Out has established an equality framework for professional clubs, supporting the development of equality practices and policies, and enabled more effective reporting and investigating of complaints of discriminatory abuse through its pioneering reporting app.
Despite 25 years of progress, hatred, prejudice, abuse and discrimination are still evident in our society and in football.
You can report an incident of discrimination in football – whether it took place online or at a grassroots, non-league or professional game – by filling in the online form available on Kick It Outs Website.
Report to Kick It Out using the methods below.
You can report an incident of discrimination via the Kick It Out app which can be used on iPhone and Android devices. The app provides users with the ability to attach video, photo and audio evidence to complaints to help support investigations into discriminatory abuse and behaviour across football.
The award-winning app also allows complainants to shield their identifying information from professional clubs across the English Football League, Premier League, Women’s Super League and the football authorities by clicking the ‘remain anonymous’ button contained within the reporting form.
Steps have been taken to ensure that reporting grassroots and non-league incidents is simple and user-friendly. Selecting grassroots and non-league comes at the very top of the reporting form and there are only a few entry fields, making complaints clearer and more concise.
You can report an incident of discrimination by calling 0800 169 9414 and speaking directly to a Kick It Out staff member.
Alternatively, you can privately message Kick It Out on its Facebook page here.
When reporting an incident of social media discrimination, screenshots or links to the offending posts are recommended in order to assist Kick It Out in taking up the issue with the relevant social media platform or authority.
You can also contact Kick It Out’s Reporting Officers to report an incident of discrimination by emailing [email protected]
