Let's kick sexism out of football

A new film has been released in response to the sexism debate that has engulfed football this week.

The film features a number of women explaining the offside rule, a light-hearted response to the row that was sparked when Richard Keys and Andy Gray suggested that women didn’t understand the rule.

The film was produced by McCann London for Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion campaign.

Hats off to them for the quick turnaround and seizing the opportunity to raise awareness of the issue.

    Excellent stuff, even thought you can tell one or two of them are reading it!

    Fair play to them, it’s a good message.

    Nice one, Andy you cynic 😉
    As you said fair play to them, I’ve followed footie for 40 years and would have had to read some of the finer detail, we just need Sky to get rid of the girls performing their hot pants and team shirt stuff from Soccer AM now, like my kids said “what is the point of that?”
