Football teams across Scotland, unite to take action against racism.
Over the past two weekends, a number of professional, women’s, junior and local teams, took part in our Fortnight of Action. These clubs promoted the message through social media and through their websites by posting pictures and posting articles on the run up to the match.
Before the match kicks off, there was a tannoy announcement, explaining what was about to happen. The starting 11 from each side, and match officials stood in a line, as they usually would before they shake hands and held up our red cards with the message “Show Racism the Red Card”. The men’s professional teams also wore a sticker transfer on their strips whilst the managers wore our Show Racism the Red Card badge to take action against racism.
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank every football club that took part in our annual Fortnight of Action. Across the country, all 42 SPFL teams, all women’s league teams, and the team’s from the three Junior Super Leagues took part. Local and youth teams also got in on the action. And not to forget the Scottish National Team as they prepared for their European Championship with Georgia.
Everyone of those players has helped us spread our message the racism will not be tolerated in Scottish society. We look forward to revealing our gallery of images of the 2014 Fortnight of Action shortly. Watch this space!
