The ECB will ensure that there will be open access to all those who wish to participate in all aspects of cricket and that they are treated fairly.
The ECB specifically supports initiatives by other organisations within cricket which recognise the principles of equality of opportunity and treatment such as the International Cricket Council Anti-Racism Policy.
In line with ICC regulations, and as a Member of the ICC, the ECB will publicise and implement the following ICC Anti-racism policy statement:
“Spectators shall not engage in any conduct, act towards or speak to any player, umpire, referee or other official or spectators in a manner which offends, insults, humiliates, intimidates, threatens, disparages or vilifies that other person on the basis of that other person’s race, religion, colour, national or ethical origin."
