About the Awards

In February 2020 Football v Homophobia held the inaugural Football v Homophobia Awards to recognise the great work on LGBT+ inclusion happening across the game. It is time again for you to nominate those clubs, organisations, groups and individuals who you feel have been making a difference in the past year!

We are calling for nominations from across the game, for individuals of all genders, ethnicities, religions, and ages, for disabled and non-disabled people, as well as nominations for organisations who have provided spaces for people of diverse identities. We welcome nominations in all categories for intersectional work which addresses additional layers of discrimination faced by many people within our community, and to increase inclusion amongst these groups. 

The deadline for nominations is the 1st January 2021 and the awards ceremony will be held on Friday 5 February 2021.

We will celebrate the hard work of clubs and individuals over the past year, in the following categories:

  • Professional Game
  • Non-League Clubs
  • Grassroots
  • Fan Group
  • Welsh Leagues
  • English County Football Association
  • Women’s Game 
  • Football v Homophobia Hero
