Reaction to Port Vale’s fans for diversity day exceeds expectations

Port Vale Supporters Club say that the reaction to their event to promote fans for diversity was “beyond” their expectations.

The Supporters’ Club handed out ska style t-shirts at Vale Park at the game against Northampton Town to promote the Fans for Diversity campaign with an anti-racist message.

21 volunteers at turnstiles handed out free t-shirts to 300 fans at Vale Park this Saturday, with a simple “Love Port Vale, Hate Racism” slogan – inspired by The Specials’ famous Gangsters LP cover. The club supported the action with the players taking to the field in the t-shirts during their pre-match warm-up.

Supporters Club vice chairman Malcolm Hirst told OVF: “The day itself went way beyond my expectations. The Vale fans got fully behind the day and embraced the message of diversity, equality and inclusion.

“It was wonderful to have a very positive, good new story about Vale fans and the club itself. The reaction in the ground and on social media to the day was brilliant.”
