Bolton Wanderers show support for Together Against Discrimination

20 September 2021

Bolton Wanderers showed their support for the EFL’s ‘Together Against Discrimination’ campaign at the weekend.

Wanderers hosted Rotherham United at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday afternoon, which coincided with the Sky Bet League One team’s ‘Community Family Day’.

During the pre-match warm-ups, Bolton players sported t-shirts which adorned the Together Against Discrimination messaging to show their support for the initiative.

Following recent reports of hateful comments made towards Bolton players, the Club confirmed it had reported the matter to Greater Manchester Police, as well as following the protocols provided by the EFL and Kick It Out.

In August, the EFL released a League-wide anti-discrimination video - featuring a voiceover from former EFL player and manager Jobi McAnuff - which calls on all in stadiums to call out abuse, report discrimination and to respect players and one another.

The video follows the launch of the Together Against Discrimination campaign at the start of the 2021/22 season, which has seen Clubs across all three divisions adopting a unified position on a matchday reiterating that racism, discrimination and abuse is not welcome in our game or in our communities.
