Activities to support campaign on Saturday.

Leeds United welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon and the fixture is being dedicated to the No Room For Racism campaign (NRFR), which was launched by the Premier League to tackle racism in football and demonstrate its continued commitment to equality and diversity.

The NRFR initiative sends a strong message to all football supporters that the League and its clubs will not tolerate racist behaviour anywhere and fans are being urged to challenge and report racism wherever it takes place, including online discriminatory abuse.

To help raise awareness and support the work being done around the No Room For Racism campaign, there will be a range of NRFR branding around the stadium for the match. A special ball plinth will be used ahead of kick-off along with a branded backdrop that will be in place for the line-up and pin badges will be worn by all players and backroom staff.

Leeds United continue to work closely with the Premier League to highlight the ongoing commitment to combat discrimination whilst also promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion across all areas of the club. Once again, our first-team players have been involved in various activities to show their support in raising awareness around the campaign, with Tyler Roberts recently announced as our Player Ambassador for Equality and Diversity.

Ahead of this gameweek, the Wales international joined young students at Alder Tree Primary to help them celebrate Black History Month and learn more about the NRFR campaign. The Leeds United Foundation will now be launching a city-wide schools challenge encouraging youngsters to explore different cultures, learn about the backgrounds of their classmates and create a piece of work around what Black History Month means to them.

In the lead up to of kick-off on Saturday, an updated video produced by the Premier League, that features Leeds United stars, will also be shown on the big screen which calls on all supporters to: Challenge it. Report it. Change it.
