Gloucestershire FA celebrates Black History Month 2020

Celebrating Black History Month

GFA to celebrate Black History Month 2020 via an online discussion with special guests

Every year since 1987 the month of October has been dedicated to raising awareness and paying tribute to black history in the UK. It is a celebration of the contributions and achievements by people of Black, Asian and mixed heritage. 

To celebrate Black History Month 2020, Gloucestershire FA will be hosting an online webinar with special guests offering insights into their journeys, experiences in football and celebrating BAME cultural and heritage nationally & locally. The evening will include presentations on playing, coaching and refereeing in the game as well as other opportunities. Furthermore, we will be opening the floor for audience Q+A.

The COVID-19 restrictions imposed upon on us this year will mean our event will be hosted via Microsoft Teams, on Thursday 29 October starting at 6.30 PM and running until 8.15 PM.

You will hear from the Gloucestershire FA's Inclusion and Advisory Board (IAG) and our specials guests on the evening will include:

  • Football League Referee Sam Allison,
  • FA Education's, Steve Smithies, Butch Fazel and Lawrence Lok,
  • Kick It Out's Grassroots Manager, Tajean Hutton,
