Kick it Out Launch Free App

    •  

Kick it Out have launched a new app for mobile phones to allow spectators to report discrimination at games.

The app is now available to download ahead of the new football season, and can be used to report discriminative behaviour at professional football grounds, non-league grounds and at local grassroots game. Individuals can use the app to report incidents quickly, confidentially and anonymously.

The concept developed after a survey of over 5,000 fans, determined that at least two thirds had witnessed racist or homophobic chanting at football matches. The Tackling Discrimination survey also revealed that many fans were unclear how to report incidents, and feel that it is ‘too much hassle’ to report an incident.

Please find below further information regarding the Kick It Out app’s ‘Report It!’ function:

- The app works both online and offline depending on the availability of a mobile phone signal
- If submitting an incident report from a Premier League or Football League ground, the user is able to select the exact stadium they are located at from a drop-down menu facility
- If submitting an incident report during a match at non-league or grassroots level, there is a ‘Non League/Grassroots’ button which can be selected from the ‘Where did it happen?’ field - once submitted, this will be sent to the appropriate body to investigate
- Wherever an incident is reported, once Kick It Out receives the complaint, it will be raised with the clubs involved and governing body, and monitored from that point onwards

You can download the app via the Apple Store and Google Play.
