The Trailblazers project is a celebration of the rich diversity of players in British football – past, present and future. This programme will uncover important hidden history. Trailblazers guides Premier League academy players and members of the Premier League Charitable Fund (PLCF) Kicks and Inspires groups to discover their club’s first player of Black or Asian heritage, explore their experiences, and celebrate the club’s history with supporters and the wider community.

Young players, Kicks, and Inspires participants will also be invited to identify other Black or Asian Trailblazers from their club and local area, past and present, who have made a difference in their clubs and local communities, amplifying their contributions to football and wider society.
