CITY SUPPORTING FOOTBALL v TRANSPHOBIA WEEK OF ACTION

24 March 2020

City are proud to be supporting the Football v Transphobia Week of Action, aiming to tackle transphobia in football. 

In its second year, the campaign will run from today for seven days until next Tuesday (March 31), in the setting of increasing transphobia across Europe.

The Football v Transphobia Week of Action aims to amplify the largely invisible voices of trans people involved in the game.

A growing number of trans participants feel intimidated in football, due to the culture and negative attention fuelled within the environment. 

Through the Week of Action, Football v Transphobia will highlight the barriers and challenges trans people face in participating in and attending football as well as the positive contribution trans people are making in the game.

The Week of Action will also show people how they can be active allies for the trans community and support their inclusion in football.

Clubs, organisations and individuals are all encouraged to get involved - in any way possible - to show their support for the trans community.
