Altrincham FC supporters joined forces with Altrincham and Hale Muslim Association to take part in a Fans for Diversity tournament held at Curzon Ashton FC on Sunday. Fans for Diversity is run by The Football Supporters Federation and Kick it Out and it has a simple aim – to celebrate diversity among football fans and ensure that all fans can feel safe and welcome at football. Football is the world’s greatest game and it is for everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, race, faith, sexual orientation or any other feature. As well as 3 teams representing Altrincham FC, there were teams representing Curzon Ashton FC, Oldham Athletic and Radcliffe Borough FC. The tournament had one simple aim, which was to bring football clubs and local communities together.
“It was a fantastic tournament which demonstrated the true values of football and demonstrated how the sport can bring communities together. Altrincham FC is committed to developing relationships with all areas of our local community and I am proud of the partnership we have developed with our friends from the Altrincham and Hale Muslim Association.” Jordan Tyms, Inclusion and Diversity Coordinator Altrincham FC
