Prince William 'deeply concerned' after children 'racially abused' during football matches

Sky, 19 Mar 2023
Prince William has written to a grassroots football club condemning the racism its players and coaches have faced.

The heir to the throne, who is president of the Football Association, said he was "deeply concerned" by their experiences and that those involved "must be held accountable".

Alpha United Juniors, a team based in Bradford, first spoke out in November, revealing how for years players as young as seven, have been on the receiving end of slurs and even threats of violence from the sidelines.
