Football v Homophobia

Football v Homophobia (FvH) is an international initiative opposing homophobia in football, from grassroots level to professional football.

FvH uses football as a tool to remove prejudice based on gender identity and sexual orientation and to take a clear stand against LGBT discrimination.

In 2011, Fare and FvH joined forces to work across the different levels of football and help bring about a positive change.

As part of this partnership, several initiatives, such as conferences, workshops, tournaments, and more, have been organised to advocate for LGBT rights and ensure that everyone can enjoy, participate in and practice football.

In addition to this, every year, groups across Europe and beyond are supported by Fare and FvH to run anti-homophobia/biphobia/transphobia football related activities on theFootball v Homophobia Month of Action (February) and around the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT).
