Out on the Fields is the largest and the first international study on homophobia in sport. Nearly 9500 people took part, primarily from English speaking countries. Participants included around 25% heterosexual men and women.
Data collection, analysis and the final results were reviewed by a panel of seven academic experts on homophobia in sport from six universities in four countries. The research itself was conducted by global sports market research firm, Repucom. It was commissioned by the Bingham Cup Sydney 2014 (the world cup of gay rugby) in partnership with a coalition of LGBTI and mainstream sporting organisations including the Federation of Gay Games.
