The EFL has introduced positive action measures aimed at tackling the under-representation of coaches and managers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethic (BAME) backgrounds. New regulations require clubs to shortlist at least one suitably qualified BAME candidate (where an application has been received) for all roles in Academy football that require a UEFA A or UEFA B Licence.

Do you consider your ethnicity to fall within one of the following definitions?

• Black

• Asian

• Other Minority Ethnic (i.e. from any other ethnic group that is not ‘White British’)
