CITY TO HOST KICK IT OUT FAN EXHIBITION

29 March 2017

A number of supporters' group will get an opportunity to showcase their work on diversity ahead of this Saturday's (1 April 2017) home encounter with Walsall.

The Kick It Out Fan Exhibition will be held at the Northern Commercials Stadium shortly before the Bantams' Sky Bet League One fixture with the Saddlers.

Kick It Out is an organisation that helps to promote equality and inclusion in football, and City is this year backing their 'Call Time on Hate' campaign.

This Saturday's fan-led exhibition will give supporters an opportunity to learn more about the various diversity groups associated with the club and the work they do in the community.

These groups include Bangla Bantams, Bradford City LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Supporters' Group and Bradford City Disabled Supporters' Association.

Bangla Bantams was set up in 2015 to help promote and encourage participation by the South Asian community in local grassroots football.

Bradford City Disabled Supporters' Association was formed to help advise the club on any accessibility and inclusion issues, bringing around positive changes to the match-day experience for disabled fans.

The club recently threw their support behind Level Playing Field Weeks of Action, a two-week event that took place at the beginning of March to help highlight and celebrate positive stories involving disabled staff and fans in sport.

Bradford City LGBT Supporters' Group regularly meets at the Bradford Brewery as a safe space to drink ahead of home match-days.

The club displays a rainbow flag (a LGBT symbol of pride and diversity) at the Northern Commercials Stadium. It also offers a confidential texting service to highlight any problems and relevant training and support to match-day staff.

Bradford City Women's Football Club and Bradford Hate Crime Alliance are also due to attend.

The exhibition will take place between 12noon and 1:30pm within the Bantams Bar in The Kop Stand on Saturday.
