EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Aston Villa are committed to the principles of equality, valuing diversity and combating unfair treatment throughout all levels of the organisation.

We want to ensure an inclusive and welcoming environment to supporters, players, local community, customers, community outreach participants, employees, contacts, and competitors. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind and embrace all regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity.

Our aim is to formulate an initiative that transcends all levels of the Club. Aston Villa will strive to guarantee that anyone involved with the Club, no matter the capacity, can be assured of an environment in which their rights, dignity and individual worth are respected, and in particular that they are able to enjoy their engagement at the Club without the threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment, bullying and abuse.

We celebrate the diversity of our Club and city and are committed to the values set by the Premier League, the Football Association and the EFL. We will work alongside organisations such as Kick It Out to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change for everyone who plays, watches or works in football.

All In. Together.


Reporting an incident

As part of our on-going commitment to the kick it out campaign, the club would like to remind all supporters that racial, homophobic or discriminatory abuse, chanting, anti-social behaviour or harassment is strictly forbidden and will result in arrest and ejection from Villa Park.

If supporters experience any form of anti-social behaviour, abuse or discrimination inside the stadium, please help us eliminate it reporting to a steward, taking note of stand , row and seat number or by reporting it using the Kick It Out app.
