All tiers of football dealing with racism: juniors coach


Racism in sport is an ongoing issue that not only affects the sporting world, but society as a whole.

Most recently, young Adelaide United striker Kusini Yengi was subjected to social media abuse, following his maiden A-leage goal in his club’s win against Melbourne Victory in March 2020.

At the time, Adelaide United’s director of football Bruce Dijte called for a cross-code ban on fans who subject players to racist abuse.

Suzie Haidar speaks to Fizz Ibrahim, president of Uni Hill Eagles football club, about what is being done at the grassroots junior level to address this issue.
