VMFC on the Victoria Derbyshire programme

26 October 2016

 

A new BBC Radio Five Live survey showed that 82% of sports fans are now comfortable with the idea of a gay player in the team, whilst 8% would stop supporting their team if a player came out. 

 

At the same time, Football Association chairman Greg Clarke told MPs he was "cautious" of encouraging a player to come out because they may suffer "significant abuse" from fans.

 

You can see the programme here (fast forward to one hour 39 minutes). The programme is available until around 24 November.
