The annual fortnight of action for Show Racism the Red Card will be marked by a number of events locally, co-ordinated by Perth & Kinross Council for the 5th consecutive year. The fortnight runs from 15 October until 31 October and will be supported by all Scottish Football Clubs
St Johnstone’s Show Racism the Red Card poster will be launched on Tuesday 28 September at the club’s McDiarmid Park home. The posters will then be distributed to St Johnstone fans by a team of volunteers on Saturday 2 October before the home game versus Hibernian.
The posters have been jointly funded by the Perth & Kinross Community Safety Partnership and the local branch of Unison who have also renewed their sponsorship of the trackside advertising boards at the games.
McDiarmid Park will also host an annual game for local Mental Health Service Users, promoting the campaign in partnership with the ‘See Me’ campaign. This match takes place on Tuesday 26 October.
