Lord Ouseley is to stand down as the chairman of anti-racism and discrimination charity Kick It Out.
The 73-year-old former chair of the Commission for Racial Equality, founded the organisation in August 1993.
The charity confirmed his intention to quit, with a media release expected to be distributed later on Tuesday.
Speaking in August on the 25th anniversary of the organisation’s founding, Ouseley admitted removing discrimination from football is a task which would never be completed.
He also hinted he was preparing to retire.
He said in August: “There does come a time and I think that time will come certainly within the next 12 months.
