Discrimination: Tell Us, We’ll Tackle It

Reporting discrimination within grassroots football

The Football Association is encouraging all participants and spectators to report any acts of discrimination that they witness within grassroots football

The new Tell Us, We’ll Tackle It campaign is being rolled out with the support of every County FA across the country and is designed to put further emphasis on the importance of reporting incidents of discrimination.

There is no place for discrimination in football, whether it’s online, in training, on the pitch or on the sidelines. We operate a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination and want to ensure that reporting it is as simple and effective as possible.


The FA have introduced an updated process for reporting discrimination across the country, including a dedicated website which gives clarity on the process and FAQs to assist with any further queries.

All completed online forms will be sent directly to the relevant FA and County FA staff so they can begin any investigation process immediately.

Karl Lingham, Hertfordshire FA CEO, said: “There is no place for discrimination in football and we are committed to seeing it stamped out. It's crucial that any spectators or participants who believe that they have been the subject of, or witness to, discriminatory abuse to report it to us. We can then take action, helping to ensure that everyone is able to play, coach, officiate, administer or watch football free from discrimination.”
