REDS SUPPORT WORK OF KICK IT OUT AT SATURDAY'S GAME AGAINST FOREST GREEN

3 April 2019

Crawley Town are supporting Kick It Out’s Week of Action this week, demonstrating the club's and the EFL's ongoing commitment to equality and inclusion across all areas of the game.

The campaign runs until Sunday 7 April with the EFL and its clubs also supporting the Premier League’s No Room for Racism messaging. Following recent high-profile incidents of discrimination it is important that football responds at this challenging time with the League and all 72 clubs again reiterating that there is absolutely no place for racism in football or society.

Saturday's game against Forest Green Rovers will feature the captains wearing Kick It Out armbands and a pennant exchange as well as the EFL and its Clubs supporting the anti-discrimination message across their channels. Our players will also warm-up in the familiar Kick It Out t-shirts.

Underpinned by the EFL’s Code of Practice and Equality Standard, EFL Clubs have made an important difference across the last 25 years by challenging and reporting discriminatory behaviour and practices, delivering role models, both on and off the pitch and introducing initiatives to broaden the diversity of the workforce.

Crawley Town Operations Director Kelly Derham said: "Saturday is the game where we promote the great work being done by the Kick It Out campaign to try and eradicate racism from the game.

"Kick It Out have made great strides since its inception in 1993, but the appalling abuse directed at England players in Montenegro last month provided a stark reminder that a lot of work still has to be done.

Thankfully, incidents here at The People’s Pension Stadium are extremely rare but if you do witness racist behavior please do not hesitate to report it to the nearest steward."
