The report says the Football Association must take the lead in the fight against racism in football and set a strong example for others to follow. The report recommends:
- The FA should make it a priority for stewards and club staff to be trained to deal with abuse at club grounds, and to use social media to condemn discrimination.
- Prosecutions in cases of racial abuse at league and club level are "extremely welcome" but similar efforts should be applied to the grassroots game.
- More candidates from ethnic minorities should be trained as coaches and referees.
- Recruitment of managers and directors should be transparent and consistent to encourage greater ethnic diversity.
