Kick It Out has a number of reporting methods available to anybody who has seen, heard or been on the receiving end of discriminatory abuse in a football environment.
One incident is too many, and supporters, players, managers and clubs at all levels of the game have a part to play in maintaining a policy of zero tolerance.
Kick It Out is not a regulatory body and therefore not responsible for administering sanctions and punishments.
Our role is to raise the complaint with the club or governing body concerned and monitor the case to ensure appropriate action is taken.
Where the club or governing body requires additional advice in dealing with a problem, Kick It Out is able to assist by providing guidance.
Please note – Kick It Out acts upon complaints which fall under the jurisdiction of The Football Association (FA) and County FAs.
Every year, Kick It Out publishes a statistical summary of the reports of discrimination the organisation has received during the campaign.

All complainants have the choice as to whether they wish their report to be dealt with in confidence.
Contact details are taken so Kick It Out can report back on how the club or governing body has responded to the complaint, or in case the campaign requires any further information.
If you have chosen to make a confidential report your contact details will not be passed on.
