Graham Robson January 5, 2023

The 2023 Football v Homophobia Awards launched in December, with new categories added for this year. The Awards, first celebrated in February 2020, acknowledge clubs, organisations, groups and individuals who have been making a difference to LGBTQ+ inclusion in football.

Lou Englefield, Campaign Director, said: “Football v Homophobia is the longest running LGBTIQ+ anti-discrimination campaign in football. When you’ve been working across the game for 12 years, you see the positive changes that have been made.

“We wanted to celebrate achievements and say thank you to those who’ve been working hard to make a difference to LGBTIQ+ people in football”
