Match Actions for the 2015 Fortnight of Action in Wales
Each season the Clubs in Wales help reiterate their support of the campaign during a match day action as a vehicle to deliver SRtRC’s message.
This action will form part of SRTRC’s Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) Fortnight of Action, October 16th-31st 2015. FARE is the UEFA sponsored European initiative against racism in football. SRtRC is a core member of the FARE network.
In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Wales, the ‘day of action’ will also help member clubs underline and draw attention to the work that they are already doing in this area, and any progress that has been made since the SRtRC Fortnight of Action last October.
The main thrust of the message of the day will take place during the warm up and prior to kick off. The players of both teams in each game will warm up in SRtRC RED T-shirts and the club will air a public announcement highlighting the clubs stance towards an inclusive environment.
In the Welsh premier league, Huws Grey Alliance and Welsh league teams prior to kick off players will gather in front of the main stand also holding a large Red card in the air. This will be supported by a simultaneous public address announcement condemning racism.
