More details to follow.
"For a third season, we will be taking specific action on trans inclusion and transphobia in the game. We are inviting cisgender people in football to show their support for their trans friends, team mates, fellow fans and all trans people in the game across social media during the Week of Action."
All you have to do is take a short video of yourself as follows:
Introduce yourself < pause > State why you are a #TransFootyAlly
Then post it on your socials: #TransFootyAlly

The FvH Youth Panel hosted a panel discussion and were joined by Sammy, along trans people involved in football, to discuss how we can all be better allies, and what football can do to become more trans-inclusive. We will also hear about their personal experiences of the game to help clubs, coaches and the wider footballing community better understand what they can do to improve, shaping the next steps towards making sure football is truly inclusive for everyone.
