Villa v Ipswich: Football v Homophobia campaign fixture

Villa v Ipswich: Football v Homophobia campaign fixture

Football v Homophobia (FvH) takes place every year in February – and our clash with Ipswich this weekend is our designated game to highlight this issue. 

FvH is an international campaign to tackle homophobia and prejudice against LGB&T (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans) people in football. 

The campaign is supported by The FA and endorsed by The Premier League and The Football League. 

The aim of FvH is to make football safe and welcoming for everyone. 

Throughout Football v Homophobia month and beyond, please help us by standing up to prejudice and discrimination against LGB&T people in the game. 

Together we can make football a welcoming place for everyone. 

If you witness any behaviour during a game, like anti-gay chanting and hateful or prejudiced language, speak to a nearby steward, the police, a club official or contact Kick It Out via the reporting line – 0800 169 9414 – or the Kick It Out app. 

Remember, doing nothing only allows discrimination to get worse!
