Club Statement: Racism in Cricket - Kia Oval Skip to main content

In the light of the necessary and relevant ongoing conversations about racism in cricket, Surrey County Cricket Club would like to invite any Surrey player, coach, official or employee – at all levels of representation – to contact us if they feel they have ever suffered racism or prejudice on any occasion during their time at Surrey CCC.

Should anybody make an approach, senior figures will reach out to further listen to your experience and start to understand the situation in greater depth.

Anybody wanting to contact the Club is asked to do so by e-mailing All communications will remain entirely confidential.

As the ECB recently stated, there is no place for racism or any form of discrimination in cricket and where it is found, swift action must be taken.

Surrey County Cricket Club is an anti-racist organisation and is completely opposed to prejudice in all its forms. The Club has an ongoing commitment to diversity and education of players, coaches and staff at all levels.

There is no place for racism in our society – and we must all play our part in ensuring it is rooted out and eradicated. It is important that we ensure any historical wrongs that have been visited upon people at this Club are never repeated.

The Independent Commission for Equity on Cricket (ICEC) has launched its public Call for Evidence asking for everyone in cricket to share their perceptions and experiences of discrimination and inclusion in cricket.
