Football v Homophobia

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

FvH uses football as a tool to remove prejudice based on gender identity and sexual orientation and to take a clear stand against LGBTIQ+ 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 LGBTIQ+ 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 football related activities to promote LGTBIQ+ rights during the Football v Homophobia Month of Action (February) and around the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOTB).
