The Minister for Sport, Hugh Robertson, has backed calls for professional football clubs to do more to combat homophobia. Only 29 of 92 clubs are actively engaged in the ‘Football v Homophobia’ initiative which launched in February. One of those 29 clubs is Exeter City. The Friday night game in February against Accrington Stanley was the designated Kick It Out game, focussing on the Football v Homophobia.

The initiative is fully backed by Exeweb, who fully covered in the event in our front page news area.
