The Premier League’s No Room for Racism campaign demonstrates its continued commitment to equality and diversity, using the power and popularity of the League to oppose racism in football.

The campaign makes clear that racism is not acceptable in our competition or the wider sport.

Reporting abuse

Everyone attending or taking part in a football match has the right to feel safe, valued and included and we encourage supporters to continue to play their part in this.

If you witness racist or other discriminatory behaviour at a match or around a stadium, please report it to the police or a steward.

You can also report racism by using the Kick It Out reporting app (download the iOS app or Android app) or via Kick It Out's website reporting form

Promoting inclusion

In February 2019, the Premier League and its clubs discussed enhancing the range of programmes currently run to promote inclusion and diversity across football.

All clubs agreed that, while good work has been undertaken, more needs to be done to ensure BAME fans and players are supported.

Clubs also backed plans to further improve career pathways to encourage greater diversity in coaching, refereeing and administrative roles within the sport.

The No Room for Racism campaign sits within the Premier League’s general inclusion initiative "This is Everyone’s Game".

Nationwide advertising accompanied the launch on 30 March 2019, featuring Premier League players, managers and supporters.

Stadiums across the country displayed the No Room for Racism banner, while the campaign was also visible at Premier League Academy matches and other national events during Matchweeks 32 and 33.

Making football a welcoming sport

The Premier League fully supports clubs, Kick It Out and football’s other bodies in working together to make football a truly welcoming and inclusive sport.

This includes ensuring that offences can be readily reported and that all available sanctions are used to deter offending and punish those found guilty of racism.

The League will work with clubs and fans – and build upon existing partnerships with the Police, Crown Prosecution Service, stewards and supporter groups – to maintain a consistent approach to racist abuse.
