Ethnic Minorities And Coaching In Elite Level Football In England; 9th December 2014, 6.30pm. TREC Conference Room
Our next public discussion, on 9th December 2014, will be addressed by Dr Steve Bradbury who co-wrote the recently released report and call for action, highlighting the under-representation of BME people in management and coaching of Elite football clubs in England (see later article). He will be joined by Keith Murdoch, CEO of Leicestershire and Rutland County FA.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to book a place at this event, or telephone 0116 2042790.
Dr Bradbury’s report, prepared on behalf of Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE), found that there are only 19 BME coaches in the 552 'top' coaching positions at professional English clubs. BME coaches take up 3.4% of those positions despite at least 25% of players coming from BME backgrounds. The study says that "institutional discrimination" is present within the English leagues.
