FA chairman Greg Dyke calls on Kick It Out to continue their "outstanding" work in tackling racial discrimination in football, as they have done in their 20 years since being established.

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has saluted the work of anti-racism group Kick It Out on the 20th anniversary of their foundation.

Dyke believes that the organisation's campaigning has resulted in great progress in battling discriminative behaviour in football, but has insisted that there is more improvements to be made to make everybody feel welcome at all levels of the game.

"Another notable anniversary this year is that it is the 20th year of the kick racism out of football campaign - congratulations to Kick It Out and to the outstanding work it has done," he told reporters at the FA's 150th anniversary gala in London.

"It has achieved real success but we all know there's more to be done and the FA must not stop here.

"Of course things will change, nothing stays the same. But where they do it must be for the better."

The Let's Kick Racism Out of Football campaign was established in 1993 by the Commission for Racial Equality and the Professional Footballers' Association.
