SOFC - STOPIT
Sporting Omaha FC - STOPIT
SOFC's pledge to eliminate all forms of racism, prejudice, discrimination, sexism and bullying on and off the playing field.
From the SOFC Board of Directors:
To: Our Athletes, Families, Coaches, Staff, Supporters and Volunteers
Together, we are working towards social justice, diversity, and inclusion because we see that change is possible through the universal game of soccer. This is how we, at Sporting OFC, build common ground.
Many of us have not experienced the fear and injustice that others in our community have lived with for generations. We must do more.
We are committed to helping create a truly inclusive community where everyone is welcomed, respected and valued. This means speaking out against injustice, listening to those who have been unheard, and demanding better of ourselves and of our leaders. We stand ready to do this critical work today and always. Let soccer and Sporting OFC, together with our teammates, colleagues, friends and families lead the way.
The SOFC Board of Directors
The STOPIT programs was established in August 2019 to create recognition and awareness against all forms of discrimination and injustice. As a club, Sporting Omaha FC will not tolerate any racial or abusive comments or actions. We stand united against racism, prejudice, discrimination, sexism and bullying to all. We support breaking down barriers and being part of a solution. Through soccer we create unity.
SOFC-STOPIT, please report any acts of racism, prejudice, discrimination, sexism and bullying directly to The Sporting Omaha FC Board of Directors or your Director of Coaching.
