Yeovil Town are encouraging supporters to help tackle racism and discrimination seen or heard at football matches with the help of the Kick It Out app.
Available to download for FREE from the App Store of Google Play, the latest version of the organisation’s app provides users the ability to attach video, audio and photo evidence to accompany investigations into discriminatory abuse and behaviour at matches.
Use of the app increased 32% between 2013/14 and 2015/16, showing the increasing importance of instant reporting and evidence gathering.
With the option for anonymity available on the app, supporters can also contact Kick It Out across social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) – with private messaging advised to ensure the safety of those reporting an incident.
Reporting via the app is confidential, and sits alongside the organisation’s well-established methods of reporting, including via email and Freephone. Supporters can contact Kick It Out on 0800 169 9414 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
