This report by the Sport Industry Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University gathers data and analysis to collate an overview of the research that exists across the UK regarding racism and racial inequalities in sport. The key findings include the fact that people from ethnically diverse backgrounds in England are disproportionately more likely to live in areas with higher levels of deprivation than White British people. This is important to consider as deprivation is negatively associated with participation in sport and physical activity. The reports findings also cover interventions, the sporting workforce and participants.

The report makes many recommendations covering points such as focusing on greater granularity of data and researching more into the workforces lived experiences. The key takeaway from the report is that radical change is needed to tackle racism and racial inequality in sports.
