The FSA reaffirms our clear and unequivocal opposition to racism and all forms of discrimination.

We believe that football must offer a welcoming environment where every member of our communities can feel comfortable and valued, and we have welcomed and supported all initiatives in this direction, including players ‘taking the knee’ as their own demonstration of solidarity with those suffering racism and discrimination.

Regardless of the stated intentions of some of those booing the players at Millwall and elsewhere this weekend, the impact of that booing has undermined the anti-racist stance and created a much less welcoming atmosphere in the ground – it has had a racist impact.

The FSA will continue to work with our partners at Kick It Out, with others in football, and particularly with supporters up and down the country to combat racism and discrimination.
