Kick It Out, the organisation established to challenge discrimination in soccer, has entered into a two-year partnership with investment banking and asset management group Investec.
Investec will work with the campaign on the delivery of a number of projects, including: the annual ‘Raise Your Game’ conference, the ‘Season of Action’, and the Next 20 programme.
Lord Herman Ouseley, the chair of Kick It Out, said: “Kick It Out is delighted to have Investec supporting its ongoing partnership work to free football from all forms of discrimination. Investec’s resources and knowledge of sport, charity and education will be invaluable to our organisation.”
Investec’s managing director, Bernard Kantor, added: “Investec is committed to fighting discrimination in all walks of life. Kick It Out is successfully helping to make football a more positive and inclusive environment and Investec is proud to play a key role and to support the further development of this very important campaign.”
Investec also serves as a partner of the Investec Derby at Epson Downs Racecourse, test cricket in England and the Great Britain women’s field hockey team.
