The five minute long clip addresses discrimination on the grounds of homophobia, sexism and racism through the personal experiences of three footballers and an anti-discrimination group.

Arsenal Ladies FC and England international Casey Stoney, former Germany international Thomas Hitzlsperger, and Manchester City and Ivory Coast midfielder Yaya Touré give testimonies and talk about the way forward to bring about a change.

The Football People video also explores issues around the marginalisation of ethnic minorities in Europe and football’s potential to help overcome social exclusion through the Bucharest-based Policy Center for Roma and Minorities, which works to improve the lives of the Roma communities.
