For the world’s most international sport, we need to do more to support diversity

Posted by Miri BuacTagged , ,

Last week’s Euro 2020 qualifier game between England v Montenegro had racial discrimination front and centre. Personally, the most depressing part, was that the abuse from the Montenegrins towards several England players didn’t surprise or shock me.

Most importantly, many of us are facing these conditions without the necessary plans in place, meaning highly personal decisions are often left in the hands of strangers.   Read more “Our latest campaigns: Starting the conversation that no one wants to have”
