Premier League introduces mandatory sexual consent training for all players

The Premier League has introduced mandatory sexual consent training for players and staff.

It comes after recent high-profile police action in England involving top-flight footballers.

Training sessions will address healthy, respectful relationships and include understanding harassment and consent.

“Today’s announcement is a long overdue and important first step in the right direction,” said End Violence Against Women Coalition director Andrea Simon.

“Gender-based violence is a pervasive and systemic issue that must be addressed across the football industry as a whole, with urgent and coordinated action.”

The measures, first reported by the Telegraph, are part of a wider safeguarding education programme that was updated and developed after the Sheldon report.

The Sheldon report was an independent review into historical child sexual abuse in football. It revealed “significant institutional failings” by the Football Association and said the organisation “did not do enough to keep children safe”.
