• Set to meet football authorities and outside groups
• Football should ‘not foster division’, she told parliament
The sports minister, Mims Davies, is to hold an urgent summit with football leaders to discuss how to stamp out the growing problems of racist, homophobic and antisemitic chanting at matches. She said the game must take a zero tolerance approach to abuse.
Lifetime bans will be among the proposals when she meets the organisations, including the Premier League, Football Association and groups such as Stonewall and Kick It Out this month. Davies also said she wants to find out from supporters’ groups whether education policies can work and how the positive power of the game can be used to help address racism and discrimination.
