Fleet reiterate support for Football v Homophobia campaign

Ebbsfleet United Football Club and the Fleet Trust will be making clear their opposition to homophobia in football at the home game with Bromley this Tuesday night.

The match is a designated ‘Football v Homophobia’ fixture – a move welcomed by the club directors in support of the 2015 FvH campaign. The Fleet also supported the campaign by holding a designated match in 2013.

FvH is a fan-led volunteer-driven campaigning organisation that is focused on ridding the game of all forms of homophobia. It holds a month of action in February each year as Justin Fashanu, the first openly gay footballer, was born on February 19.

Fleet players will be warming up in Football v Homophobia T-shirts and an article about the campaign will be featured in the matchday programme.

Fleet fan Phil Moss – who helped arrange the tie-up between the club and FvH in 2013 and again this year – said, “I’m extremely proud that Ebbsfleet United and the Fleet Trust are demonstrating their support for and commitment to the FvH campaign at tonight’s match.”
