BURTON ALBION ACHIEVE BRONZE IN EFL EQUALITY CODE OF PRACTICE    

10 June 2024

BURTON Albion has achieved Bronze in the EFL Equality Code of Practice.

The award comes after the Club’s engagement with the development and delivery of the EDI Code of Practice, including the following activities:

  • Formed our EDI Working Group with staff across the Club
  • Engaged with supporters with numerous EDI matchday themes
  • Completed a Disabled Access Audit at The Pirelli Stadium
  • Supporters and staff completed equality monitoring surveys
  • Reviewed and updated Club’s Equality Policy

EFL Director of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, David McArdle, said:  

“Our 72 Clubs represent communities of people from a wide variety of diverse backgrounds. The EFL’s Code of Practice is the foundation on which our work on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is built, providing Clubs with a clear framework and setting out exactly what they need to put in place to ensure the Club is reflective of the community at all levels.   

“The progress being made is very encouraging and the EFL will continue to support and empower all Clubs to make a positive impact on their communities and the wider game.”  

Initially launched in 2012, the EFL’s Equality Code of Practice was revamped to become a multi-level accreditation scheme at the start of the 2022/23 season, with 46 of the 72 EFL Clubs achieving at least Bronze by the end of the 2023/24 season.
