The latest leg of the Kiss Bigotry Goodbye tour took place in Bellshill on Wednesday 10th February. The event was hosted by Supporters Direct Scotland in its Belgrave Street office and supported by Street League, Africa On The Ball and the Scottish Government who provided funding to ensure it was free for fans to attend.
Football author and historian Daniel Gray read from his cult book Stramash, while the team from Albion Rovers Supporters Trust won a keenly contested football quiz to take the silverware back to Cliftonhill.
Nil by Mouth campaign director Dave Scott said:
“This was another great night and we are delighted with the support we are getting from fans groups across the country. Some of the most iconic figures in football history hail from Scotland and the game is a hugely significant part of our culture. The behaviour of football fans can often attract negative headlines, but we know that the vast majority of fans simply want to support their team and enjoy the beautiful game. We are thrilled that Supporters Direct Scotland has given the campaign such strong backing. SDS knows fans are the lifeblood of football and if we are to create change they have to be involved and listened too.”
