There will also be a course held at St. George's Park on 2 December

The events, which form a key part of The FA's ongoing Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination plan, are aimed at those working in the game at either club or county level, offering the opportunity to:

- take part in practical training on how to prevent and tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in football

-  develop strategies to ensure LGB&T colleagues, players, fans and wider football community feel included, valued and supported

- discuss and explore ways to get involved in LGB&T initiatives throughout 2015, including Football v Homophobia’s month of action, LGB&T History Month, Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign and International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO)

- hear about good practice from other professional and grassroots clubs, leagues and county FAs

-  meet the experts from across football and beyond on LGB&T inclusion and discrimination
