Change the "Football (Offences) Act 1991"

This petition had 82 supporters

The continued homophobia within football stadia and within the football community as a whole is the only form of abuse that is not being stamped out like racism etc.

The FA, The Premier League and the EFL need to do far more for this to happen and allow a player to come out as gay without the fear of repercussions and the right support.

Football is the only professional game in England where a player isn't openly gay and this is largely down to not having the support network in place.

I don't want my children becoming the bigoted person with the abhorrent views we all disagree with.

Lets make a change.
