Let’s make sport everyone’s game

To make sport everyone’s game we need to come together – as fans, players, and teams at all levels.

Homophobia, biphobia and transphobia are still too common in sport.

New research from ICM finds that:

72per cent of football fans have heard homophobic abuse on the stands at a match

20per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds say they’d be embarrassed if their favourite player came out

Young people aretwice as likely to say anti-LGBT language is harmless if it’s just meant as 'banter'

We need to send a positive message

To our friends, families and the teams we play alongside:

We welcome LGBT people in sport and we want to make sport everyone’s game.
