Football Black List celebrates diversity, says Premier League

Posted on: November 27th, 2019 by admin

Even the Premier Leagues director of policy, Bill Bush, states induce diversity is helped by the Soccer Black List in the game but acknowledges further progress is needed.
Leon Mann and Rodney Hinds in 2008 created the initiative in an effort to highlight the contributions made by indigenous people in Caribbean and African backgrounds, both on and off the pitch.
A black contribution on or off the pitch deserves to be celebrated and we would like to be a part of that, Bush told Sky Sports News.
The second thing that the Black List does is challenge – it states quite nicely but rather firmly theres lot more to be achieved and were so up for it.
This is not only 1 night in November – this is about a yearlong mindset that we want to get, informed by Dark List, driven by Black List organisers to do a lot better.
Theres so much more to do.
Mann sees the initiative as an chance for black kids to discover.
I need young black kids to have a take a look at awards such as Black List and inquire,who is that, hit on Google, examine our site and learn about the lawyers, doctors, community workers and most of those who do incredible tasks and inspire young people to become involved in soccer, he said.
Well then see greater diversity, which I believe everyone in the game wants.
The achievements of the very first openly gay participant, the Justin Fashanu and Benjamin Odeje, the first black player were celebrated as they won the Keith Alexander awards to the black community and the game.
England forward Raheem Sterling and manchester City was one of those but it was Chelsea Womens Anita Asante who picked up the accolade.
