In a nutshell

The Ethnic Minorities in Coaching in Elite Level Football in England report, jointly published by Fare and the Sports People’s Think Tank (SPTT), explores the levels of representation of black and ethnic minority coaches (BME) in English professional football.

Research figures show that only 19 ethnic minority coaches are employed in 552 positions across 92 professional clubs, just 3.4% of the roles available.

The report also provides an explanation for the low levels presented and six recommendations to boost diversity among English football at coaching level.
