Loughborough College takes stand against discrimination in sport.

LOUGHBOROUGH College has been taking a stand against discrimination in sport as part of Football People action weeks - already the largest series of anti-discrimination activities in sport in Europe and now expanding across the globe into 70 countries.

Its latest Proud to Play event, an awareness-raising LGBT+ workshop for the Men's Football and Rugby Academies, saw former Loughborough College student and now sport coach Callum Prince offering a personal insight into discrimination issues.

Head of Football at Loughborough College, Jay Groocock, added: "We are delighted to support the Proud to Play campaign, it is so important to enable students to speak openly and our focus for this workshop was LGBT+ issues.

"We encourage students and staff to challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language and offer guidance on creating inclusive teams. "Loughborough College has a leading reputation for sport and we want it be accessible and inspiring for everyone."
