Discrimination has no place in football
Tell us, we’ll tackle it
Our County FA is determined to provide an inclusive football experience for anyone who wishes to play, coach, officiate, administer, support or be involved in any role in English football.
Discrimination has no place in football. It can be upsetting and hurtful. So, when you tell us about it, we listen and we act. If you’ve witnessed discrimination in football you should tell us by visiting the link below:
What happens when you tell us about discrimination?
We investigate every report on discrimination we receive and treat each one seriously, so you can be sure that you’re being listened to with confidence.
Once you’ve filled in the online report form on The FA.com website and submitted it, the central FA team will share the case with the local CFA and oversee the process.
A CFA investigation then takes place. The evidence will be reviewed and a charge, if one is made, will be determined.
We’ll tackle it.
If a charge is made by the CFA, a disciplinary commission appointed by The FA will review the case.
The alleged offender will be asked for a response to the allegation, and all identified witnesses will be asked to make a statement too.
Once the disciplinary commission have completed the hearing, the offence is either proven or not proven. Any outcome would be subject to appeal.
