News & Media Kick It Out team up with Non League Day Kick It Out is partnering Non League Day for the eighth consecutive year, with six dedicated games nationwide. Now a well-established annual date in the football calendar, having started in 2010, this year’s Non League Day takes place on Saturday 12 October. Six teams up and down the country will be dedicating their matches on the day to Kick It Out to recognise the positive contribution football’s equality and inclusion organisation has made to football. The games have been spread across the Midlands, Northern England and Southern England to make sure the organisation has a presence nationwide. Stonewall FC (London), Clapton CFC (London), IQRA FC Leicester (Midlands), Newark Town FC (Midlands), Campion AFC (Yorkshire) and Nantwich Town FC (North West) are all dedicating matches. This year, as part of our ongoing commitment to the grassroots game, we are partnering with clubs further down the football pyramid. All the clubs will put on inclusive match day activities, in addition to the work they are already doing in this area, to underline their commitment to engaging with diverse communities. Tajean Hutton, Kick It Out’s grassroots manager, said: "It's a pleasure to use the Kick It Out platform to shed light on - and support -non-league grassroots teams around the country for Non League Day. "These are teams who work tirelessly to cater for their local community and deserve the support of the football community." Non League Day coincides with the autumn international break each year. Fans of teams not in action are encouraged to watch their local non-league side in place of their regular football fix. The gate receipts non-league clubs receive from the larger crowds can make a significant difference to their financial security. In some cases, it literally keeps the lights on. James Doe, who set up Non League Day after being inspired by a pre-season trip to watch Queens Park Rangers play in Tavistock, added: “It’s great to be able to say we’re working with Kick It Out again. “Their work at all levels of the game is incredibly important and I’m really proud we’ve been able to assist in delivering their message of equality and inclusion.” If you want to find out more about each club, keep a look out for video interviews and features with them in the coming weeks.
