Zero tolerance on discriminatory behaviour

6 September 2019

Fans are reminded that Doncaster Rovers take a zero tolerance approach to all forms of abuse, both at the ground and online, especially those of a discriminatory or racist nature.

When such behaviour or language falls below the standard we expect from our supporters, the club has a duty to report such offences to both the police and Kick It Out.

Kirsty Cavanagh, head of people & culture, said: “We are proud of the diversity throughout our club and within Doncaster, in the stands, on the pitch, and within our communities. 

“We work closely with the EFL, Kick it Out, and a number of local and national statutory agencies to ensure everyone feels safe at our events. In line with the EFL we are committed to further promoting inclusion and diversity throughout our game and beyond.

“It is evident there is still a minority of people who think discriminatory behaviour is acceptable, but we are clear as a club it will not be accepted by anyone visiting the stadium or making comment on social media. We know how passionate football fans are, but this should never lead to any form of prejudice. We want everybody to be positive and respectful, create a welcoming atmosphere and show that football is everyone’s game.” 

At Rovers we are committed to promoting equality, inclusivity and diversity across the club, our fan base and the wider community, and do not accept discrimination in any form.

We encourage any supporters who are the victims of, or who witness, any form of discrimination to report it to us via the text number, or direct to Kick it Out or South Yorkshire Police.
