Dear Cameron Gillies 
 
Freedom of Information Request reference: 73395 
Thank you for your email of 09 December 2022, in which you ask for: 
 
The number of police reported football-related hate crime incidents during the 2020/21 
season, and the categories they fall into. Your request has been handled as a request for 
information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).  
 
I confirm that the Home Office holds the information which you have requested. The 
information is already published. It can be found at

%2BnZRZoIHFIHHRpfstDoyZInTnIDTVqJDQnM%3D&reserved=0, 
please refer to 
Table 11 for the information you requested. 
 
Section 21(1) of the FOIA exempts the Home Office from having to provide you with this 
information, because it is already reasonably accessible to you.  
 
If you are dissatisfied with this response you may request an independent internal review 
of our handling of your request by submitting a complaint within two months to 
xxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxx.xxx.xx, quoting reference 73395. If you ask for an internal review, 
it would be helpful if you could say why you are dissatisfied with the response.  
 
As part of any internal review the Department's handling of your information request would 
be reassessed by staff who were not involved in providing you with this response. If you 
were to remain dissatisfied after an internal review, you would have a right of complaint to 
the Information Commissioner as established by section 50 of the FOIA.
