THE BELGIAN RUGBY FEDERATION, INTERNATIONAL GAY RUGBY AND STRAFFE KETTEN RFC WILL JOIN FORCES TO TACKLE HOMOPHOBIA IN RUGBY.

The Memorandum of Understanding comes into force on Friday May 13th 2016 and it creates a framework for cooperation among the three bodies, in order to to jointly ensure that everybody feels welcome in the Belgian rugby environment. The Belgian Rugby Federation (FBRB) pledges to work together with Straffe Ketten and International Gay Rugby to combat discrimination and continue the promotion of equality and inclusiveness in the game. The concrete strategy to be deployed during the next two seasons will be developed during this summer; for the season 2016-17 we already discussed the need for a communication campaign and education actions aimed at public and players, but also at team managers and referees.
