Football Welcomes by Amnesty UK


Football Welcomes kicked-off in 2017 as a weekend of activities supported by a range of Premier League clubs, the English Football League and the FA Women’s Super League, to mark the 80th anniversary of the arrival in the UK of some of the first refugees to play professional football in the country.

Clubs participating in Football Welcomes put on various activities and events to show their support for and solidarity with refugees. The campaign is supposed to became an annual event.
