Working throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change, Kick It Out is funded by The Football Association (FA), the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA), the Premier League and The English Football League (EFL).
A small independent charity, the ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ campaign was established in 1993 in response to widespread calls from clubs, players and fans to tackle racist attitudes existing within the game. Kick It Out was then established as a body in 1997 as it widened out its objectives to cover all aspects of inequality and exclusion.
Internationally, Kick It Out has close links with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) Network, and has been cited as an example of good practice by the Council of Europe, the European Commission, European parliamentarians and the British Council.
