Charity aims to help football to “Kiss Bigotry Goodbye”
A Scottish charity has been chosen to run a Europe-wide initiative to promote equality through football.
Anti-sectarian group Nil by Mouth have received over £3,500 in funding to help organise their ‘Kiss Bigotry Goodbye’ campaign.
It’ll see them tour schools, football clubs and community projects across Scotland, promoting diversity and inclusion.
The tour will visit St Modan’s High in Stirling this afternoon (6th October).
Nil by Mouth Campaign Director Dave Scott said, “We are very excited to have been chosen to be part of this European initiative to promote equality through sport.
“There can be no denying that Scottish football has clear problems with sectarianism and also needs to do more to ensure that other forms of abuse are tackled effectively.
“We also aim to show that Scottish football can be a beautiful thing which brings people together each week right across the country.
“From Holyrood to Hamilton, we will use this tour to start hundreds of conversations with people about how we can banish the bitterness and focus on the positives of our national game. “
