RIP to those who lost their lives in Manchester attack
Following Monday (22 May) night’s atrocity in Manchester, Kick It Out’s thoughts are with all those affected and to the emergency services for their tireless work.
The need to tackle prejudice and hatred, and for improved community cohesion, is greater than ever.
During the 2016/17 season, Kick It Out has been calling on the collective force of the game to ‘Call Full Time On Hate’. The positive impact of football can have such a huge impact on communities.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by the terrible incident in Manchester and the emergency services doing amazing work in response.

The initiative aims to highlight the positive messages of inclusion echoed by football authorities, clubs, players, managers and supporters.
This follows-on from Kick It Out Chair, Lord Herman Ouseley, discussing and highlighting the impact of hate-filled actions on football and society in general.
Kick It Out has been tackling discrimination, promoting equality and supporting victims of discrimination in football for over 20 years and wants to see a sport that is inclusive and free from prejudice.
Any type of discrimination occurring within football can be reported to Kick It Out in its role as a third-party reporting bureau. For more information, please click here.
