Club proud to be backing Football v Homophobia campaign

Northampton Town is putting our weight behind an international campaign to combat homophobia.

The campaign, entitled ‘Football v Homophobia’ (FvH) aims to unite fans, players, communities, grassroots teams, professional clubs and the Football Authorities in opposing homophobia and prejudice against LGB&T (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans) people in football.

FvH is endorsed and supported by the FA, PL, FL, PFA, LMA, and Kick It Out. FvH enables people to take action against prejudice and discrimination based on sexuality or gender identity in football, and to celebrate and welcome diversity in the game. This culminates in an international show of support in February to raise awareness of the issue and to showcase new and existing work.

Northampton Town is proud to offer its support for this initiative. Homophobia, traansphobia and discrimination against LGB&T people in football is unacceptable and the Cobblers are committed to creating safe and inclusive football environments for everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Together with FvH we will work to improve football for our LGB&T supporters, players and fans and to protect the right of everyone to participate.

We would encourage our fans and supporters to help us create the game that everyone can be part and proud of by getting involved.
