FvH is a powerful way to communicate a message to all your stakeholders. The majority of fans want their clubs to do more to stand up to prejudice and discrimination based on a person’s actual or perceived sexuality or gender identity. FvH is a powerful and recognisable banner that helps you to take a clear stand.
Evidence suggests that there is a problem with homophobia in professional football. For example:
At the same time, we also believe that the majority of fans are tolerant, respectful, ordinary people, and that while work needs to be done to tackle the problem, football also needs to send out a stronger message to show it’s good side and to say that homophobia, transphobia and biphobia should not be part of the beautiful game.
FvH allows you to both send out a strong message, and also to tackle the root causes of prejudice.
When you register with us to support FvH we can provide you with a number of services to help tackle homophobia, transphobia and prejudice based on sexuality or gender identity at your club. Many of the things you can do to make a difference are simple and free.
The February month of action provides a focus for an international, united stand against homopobia, biphobia and transphobia. FvH is an international movement that makes a difference across football. There are a range of simple things you can do to be involved during February month of action. You can download all these resources here.
We believe that awareness raising, education and training are vital. We can support you with running education programmes for a range of your stakeholders; from the boardroom, to the stewards to the youth teams who are central to your club’s future.
