Kick It Out T-shirts will be worn in the warm-up
This afternoon's fixture against Plymouth has been dedicated to celebrating the work of ‘Kick it Out’, football’s equality and Inclusion organisation and we are proud to see both sets of players, match officials and Happy Harry and Hatty wearing KICK IT OUT T-shirts in their warm-ups in support of the campaign.
Kick It Out is primarily a campaigning organisation which enables, facilitates and works with the football authorities, professional clubs, players, fans and communities to tackle all forms of discrimination.
The campaign has been pivotal in persuading and supporting the game’s stakeholders to take their equality responsibilities seriously. The vision is that football will be a sport where people flourish in a supportive community, and where fairness is openly and transparently practiced and enforced for the good of all participants.
Kick it Out seeks to promote awareness of the benefits of equality, inclusion, diversity policies and practices in football, expose and challenge all aspects of discrimination and unfair practices and conduct at all levels of football, as well as sharing information about good practices being pursued to achieve equality.
We hope Kick it Out matchdays such as today’s significantly increase the awareness of inclusion and diversity, and the consequences of inappropriate behaviour across all levels of football, and to clearly show the importance of exposing inequalities and the positive value and impact that can be made through collective action.
As part of today’s campaign we have held workshops with local schools and everyone at Luton Town FC firmly endorses all of Kick it Out’s objectives and aims, and we are proud to highlight the work they do.
