On the eve of the new season, Millwall Football Club would like to reiterate its unwavering commitment to the game’s collective efforts in ridding society of all forms of discrimination.
The club is of the belief that the football family has a tremendous ability to bring about positive change within local communities and on a national and international scale. A unified and cohesive approach is key to that.
Ongoing efforts of clubs and supporter groups up and down the country should be applauded, and the incredible work carried out by campaigning and educational bodies such as Kick It Out and Show Racism The Red Card continues to be integral. They deserve greater funding in order to further enhance and widen their endeavours.
Through Millwall’s Equality Steering Committee, the club is implementing a range of different initiatives aimed at improving engagement with its diverse local communities, which is on top of other work such as a large investment into greater stadium signage, social media campaigns and more.
While they will continue not to ‘take the knee’ ahead of matches in 2021/22, players at Millwall remain fully supportive and engaged with the club’s strategies and their focus is on helping to bring about tangible change by contributing to these efforts. They stand united with everyone else in the fight against all forms of discrimination.
