Football For Everyone
Access to football - and progress within it - is available to people from every ethnic group.
We want to ensure people are aware that people from different ethnic backgrounds know how and where to get into football remains on ongoing priority. Rightly, this priority falls to The Football Association, as the game’s governing body in this country.
However, our work to break down barriers is not aimed at players – it is equally directed at potential referees, administrators, coaches, volunteers and spectators.
Ultimately all our race equality work is focused on one ethos: using the positive power of football to create equal opportunities – for everyone and anyone – to enjoy the world’s greatest game.
Our continued aim is to eradicate racism in football by ensuring no barriers exist to anyone enjoying our national game – whatever their ethnic background.

COACH, English football’s programme promoting coaching as a career for the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic community (BAME), is providing a second year of bursary funding to address under-representation at the higher levels of the coaching profession.
The programme, launched in 2011, last year supported 46 coaches in their coaching journey to attain higher level coaching qualifications and gain valuable insight observing more experienced coaches in professional football environments.
