Kick It Out to support CONIFA World Cup
Kick It Out will be supporting the CONIFA World Cup taking place in London with three matches set to recognise the organisation.
Taking place between 31 May and 9 June, CONIFA will be hosting the third World Cup with 16 teams from across the world participating in the tournament.
CONIFA is a politically neutral Non-Governmental Organisation run by volunteers with the desire to represent regions outside of FIFA, with a focus on transparency and equality.
Over the course of the tournament, three matches will be dedicated to Kick It Out, with the tournament opener between Ellan Vannin v Cascadia chosen. The two other games include Padania v Tuvalu on 2 June and Panjab v United Koreans in Japan on 3 June.
During the matches, the players will be wearing Kick It Out t-shirts and there will be messaging in the stadium that will endorse the messages of equality and inclusion.
Kick It Out Education Manager, Troy Townsend, has also been confirmed as an ambassador for the tournament.
