Rugby League charter for action

Following the lead of the Sheffield Eagles – all 14 Engage Super League clubs recently showed their support for the government’s ‘Tackling Homophobia and Transphobia in Sport’ campaign by signing The Charter for Action, which aims to make sport a welcoming environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.

The charter sets out to promote qualities such as fairness and equality, respect and dignity within all aspects of the sporting environment, from fans to players, so that all sports can be free of homophobic or transphobic abuse.

The clubs have joined the sport’s governing body, the RFL, by signing the charter and showing their commitment to help eradicate discrimination at all levels of the game.
