At the Premier League Summer Shareholders' Meeting today, clubs continued to discuss their concerns regarding discrimination in football, in particular unacceptable incidents which occurred last season.
The League provided an update on work being carried out to improve sanctioning regimes and discussions with the police and the CPS to ensure that, when appropriate, statutory authorities take cases forward.
There are extensive plans to address discrimination in the game next season, including:
Our long-term support for Kick It Out and the Raise Your Game initiative will continue and we will further develop the Equality Standard which requires all clubs to deliver inclusive policies, and have professional reporting and monitoring provisions in place.
Much good work has been done over recent years to promote inclusion and diversity in football but more is needed and we are committed to delivering it.
