Show Racism the Red Card welcomes the Scottish FA members considering tougher punishments for incidences of racist and sectarian behaviour. We are disappointed the members have voted against the new regulations.
This would have given greater weight to our campaign to eradicate racism and sectarianism from football and wider society.
However, the Scottish FA and its individual member clubs have always been extremely supportive of our anti-racism educational programmes to prevent discriminatory behaviour and make football a more inclusive sport for all.
We look forward to continuing to work with them to continue the message, regardless of today’s outcome, racist and sectarian behaviour cannot be tolerated in Scottish football.
