Black History Month

Black History Month

1 October 2021 marks the start of Black History Month. 

All throughout October, the London FA will be releasing articles and lectures which focus on black communities working within grassroots football across the capital. We will be opening discussion around how football fits in the Black Lives Matter campaign and what more can be done to support those communities. 

If you know of any projects, campaigns and fundraisers, or community stories in grassroots football which you would like to highlight during Black History Month, please drop an email to
