Middlesbrough Football Club takes all incidents of discrimination very seriously and supports Kick It Out's campaign for equality in football.

What Is Discrimination?

Discrimination is treating any person unfairly because of who they are or because they possess certain protected characteristics including Gender, Race, Religion and Belief, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Maternity and Paternity, Sex, and Sexual Orientation.

Reporting Discrimination

The club encourages supporters to report any discrimination they witness or suffer at a professional match, non-league game, grassroots level or online. 

Kick It Out App

Supporters can confidentially report incidents of discrimination seen or heard at a football match or online.

The Kick It Out app, which is available to download for FREE on iPhone or Android, allows users the ability to attach video, photo and audio evidence to complaints to aid investigations into discriminatory abuse and behaviour at matches.
