Glos FA celebrates Black History Month 2021

Black History Month is about recognising the important contributions that the Black, Asian, Minority & Ethnic communities have added to football & wider society.

This year the Black History Month theme is ‘Proud to Be’ – “The campaign aims to make Black History Month 2021 personal and unique to individuals, families and communities, focusing on how we’re all making history all the time in our own ways, as well as the contributions and achievements of Black people throughout history.”

To celebrate Black History Month 2021, we will be hosting an online evening event on Thursday 21 October, starting at 7 PM. Due to the concerns surrounding COVID-19, the event will be held on Microsoft Teams.

Joining us on the evening will be Lawrence Lok (England Football South-West Coach & EDI Development Officer), Antoine Thompson (Cheltenham Town FC Academy Manager), and Steve Smithies (Cheshire FA CEO).
