The PFA has been committed to anti-racism for decades, and has spearheaded cross-industry work to keep hatred, bigotry and abuse out of football. Unfortunately, a recent resurgence of racism towards players, both on and offline, has called for a renewal of current industry policy to keep players safe.
Our Equalities department’s primary goal has always been to support players who are victims of racist abuse, but we also educate players about racism, collaborate with anti-racist football charities and use our influence to call for changes to protect our members.
We support multiple initiatives to increase representation at all levels within the sport. This includes work we carry out directly and various collaborations with our partners in coaching, governance and management.
Yes. We’re not affiliated with any clubs, leagues or governing bodies, and we will always put your needs first.
