1000 games for Manchester United
(pic. Ryan Giggs interviewed by SRtRC competition winner Amber Gavin at MUFC training ground in 2009)
Congratulations to Ryan Giggs from all at Show Racism the Red Card for reaching a career milestone of 1000 games for Manchester United. There aren’t many professional footballers who reach this milestone and to do so for one club is an almost singular achievement.
Ryan Giggs first became involved in the SRtRC in 1998 when he appeared on our educational film. He has since appeared on four of the campaign’s educational films, met prize winners in the school competition at Manchester United’s training ground and received his Hall of Fame award on the pitch at Old Trafford in 2006.
By sharing his experiences with young people through our educational resources, Ryan has had a tremendously positive impact on young peoples’ attitudes to racism over the last 15 years.
