Sharing their experiences and work within the beautiful game will be Football Beyond Borders, a charity using football to empower young people, Chris Paouros, an active campaigner for equality across football as co-chair of the Spurs LGBT+ group and member of the FA Inclusion Advisory Board, and Lewes FC, the only professional football club to pay their men’s and women’s teams identical wages.
