FA releases film showing former players discussing homophobia in football

The Football Association has released a brand new film around anti-Homophobia in football. The film featuring former players John Scales, Brendan Batson and Aidy Williams has been made as part of the action plan on the issue.


The FA has already launched a four year plan to promote equality in football. It commits the FA to taking action in six key areas to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusion in football.

The film shows the former players discussing homophobia in football.

The film features Brendon Batson and former FA Cup winner and England international John Scales, along with ex-Reading skipper Ady Williams.

The flick has been filmed in the dressing rooms at Wembley Stadium and shows half-an-hour discussion on tackling homophobia in the game.

The film has been made as football remembered Justin Fashanu’s birthday on 19 February.
