COLCHESTER UNITED FC
A message from the Club
“We are excited to get involved with and collaboratively launch this campaign, abuse is a problem prevalent in today’s society, especially with the anonymity offered through social media platforms.
We believe that our players, staff and fans alike should be able to attend games without any fear of being subjected to abuse and discrimination.
We look forward to seeing the project grow and being a part of the work that #TogetherUnited do to educate and create a more positive environment.”
Ben Conway | Colchester United FC Partnerships and Hospitality Sales Manager
