The team expressed their thoughts on the desire to learn about the diverse cultures that make upBirminghamand spreading the message about the Sikh community too.

The Equality Standard for Professional Football Clubs has been developed by Kick It Out to replace the Racial Equality Standard introduced in2004.

could participate without fear of discrimination.
