The short film features Premier League stars such as Tottenham Hotspur’s Jan Vertonghen, Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata, Manchester United’s Juan Mata, Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany and Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck.

It encourages supporters to report any abuse they witness or suffer whether it’s to a steward or to Kick It Out via its free reporting app and follows the organisation’s work on raising awareness of LGBT discrimination within football stadia.

Bill Bush, Executive Director of the Premier League, gave his endorsement to the film and said: “This film produced by Kick It Out features all our member clubs and highlights the need to challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic behaviour across the sport.

“The Premier League is embraced across the world and we are proud to show our continued support for LGBT+ inclusion in football.”
