Here at Barnsley FC we believe that football is a game for everyone, and we are proud of the atmosphere that you create at Oakwell every matchday.

At Saturday’s match (October 28, 3pm KO), along with our visitors from Fleetwood, we’ll be marking the EFL’s Together Against Racism campaign. We are calling on you, our supporters, to make a difference and continue to report any incidents of racism or discrimination you see or hear in the stadium.

The EFL's ‘Together’ campaign perfectly complements our own ‘Together Red’ initiative, and our ongoing commitment towards Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Our 'Together Red' campaign - launched last season - has provided a clearer route for supporters to report incidents at our matches. However, during every season there are likely to be more incidents that go unrecorded.

Reporting discrimination helps remove unwanted behaviour from football stadiums, allows us to identify abusers and ensure victims get the support they need, creating a safer environment for everyone to attend football matches.

David McArdle, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion for the EFL, said: “While football has come a long way in recent years there is still much to be done, and throughout October and beyond we’re asking clubs to call on supporters to be vigilant when they are attending every match and report any incidents they see or hear in stadiums or online.

“While incidents do get reported we also know there are many that don’t, and ‘Together Against Racism’ is about breaking down the barriers to reporting and educating supporters on why it is so important, highlighting the methods which are available to them and demonstrating how it helps the football authorities, both in the short and long term.”

If you hear/see any form of discrimination, please report it.
