Each October clubs in Scotland and Wales show their support for Show Racism the Red Card during a match day action as a vehicle to deliver an Anti-Racism message to the community through the power of sport.

The Show Racism the Red Card actions weeks form part of the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) Football People Action Weeks.

Action weeks during the 2017/18 season will take place in Scotland during the 6th – 20th October and in Wales there will be a Month of Action this season that will run throughout October.

The Football People action weeks aims to unite supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by discrimination, Increases public awareness and tackle discrimination in football.

The action weeks challenge all forms of discrimination, promote integration values amongst youth and celebrate the input of all individuals that strive to make football a game for all, regardless of who we are, where we are from and what our beliefs are.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work, the ‘day of action’ will also help our partnership clubs underline and draw attention to the work that they are already doing in this area.
