‘I am England’ - Happy St George’s Day!

Today is St. George’s Day and it is fitting that on this day Philosophy Football, backed by Kick it Out, football's equality and inclusion campaign, are launching their ‘I am England’ campaign. Campaign organiser Mark Perryman explains its aim. 'I am England is very positive and simple. We can all be England, if we choose to be, no qualifications are required to become a fan, no exclusions demanded to determine who can and cannot be a supporter.'

I am supporting this campaign. Check out its great launch video here.  With the World Cup fast approaching I really like the idea of as many people as possible, from all backgrounds, saying loud and proud, ‘I am England!
