Imrul Gazi joins Kick It Out as Grassroots Advisor
Imrul Gazi has joined Kick It Out in an advisory role as the organisation intensifies its grassroots activities.
Imrul has extensive knowledge of grassroots football through several years of developing young players from the local Asian community in east London. More recently, he was appointed manager of Sporting Bengal United, who play in the Essex Senior League at step five of the National League System.
Increasing grassroots and community engagement with Kick It Out in London will be a key focus of Imrul’s role, as well as providing guidance on the reporting of discrimination throughout the area.
Imrul spoke of his delight at being able to help support the messages of equality.
“This is a massive opportunity as it has been a passion of mine to work in the football industry and for an organisation such as Kick It Out.
“I see Kick It Out as a platform where people from across all levels of the game can come to share experiences. It’s important that we share good and bad experiences from the community so we can learn from them.
“I want to focus on the good activity that is happening, particularly in the London area, so that we can highlight that equality and inclusion is a good thing for this sport and communities everywhere.”
