This year's campaign will take place from 18 -27 October, coinciding with Black History Month. Manchester United will be nominating one of the Premier League home games during this period where the Club and Foundation will help to raise awareness of Kick it Out and celebrate diversity.
As well as all 92 professional clubs in England and Wales taking part, the weeks have a strong community focus and play a role in celebrating diversity and inclusion across all other areas of the game.
Grassroots clubs, schools, community groups and fans join the professional game in coming together in symbolic activities and initiatives, which resulted in over 1000 events taking place last year.
There are many ways that you could get involved in this year’s weeks of action; you could host an event, run a competition or arrange a football tournament. Kick It Out may also be able to help with part funding your event through the One Game One Community Development Grants.
Kick It Out offers a wide range of resources to support activities taking place, including t-shirts, sweatbands, key rings and badges as well as flags and banners which will help to link your event with football’s most established equality and inclusion campaign.
