He posted the following,
Leeds United support for the Beyond It! Campaign was on display on the grounds, through game day merchandise, and will continue throughout the local community.
Leeds managing director, David Haigh, explained their club’s support for the initiative,
“We were the first football club to be a Stonewall diversity champion, and we’re proud to be the first football team in Europe to be involved with Beyond It.”
As well, Haigh, indicated that the club’s support will extend beyond the stadium and into the community,
The message will be very visible within the ground, with a text-alert line for people to contact if they hear incidents of discrimination in or around Elland Road, but it’s not just about policing. This is about education, too. The Leeds United Foundation goes out to schools, businesses and universities across the county and beyond, educating people not just about football and sport, but equality and tolerance.”
