'Shocking' rise in discrimination in football, says charity


Reports of discrimination in English professional football rose by 42 percent last season, according to campaign group Kick It Out.

The charity's report for the 2019/20 season shows complaints about abuse rose to 446 from 313 in 2018/19 even though some games were played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There was an 53 percent increase in reported racial abuse, up from 184 incidents to 282, and a 95 percent rise in reports of abuse based on sexual orientation, 117 compared to 60.
