Show Racism the Red Card’s Fortnight of Action takes place in Wales from 16th – 31st October, 2015
This weekend will see clubs across Wales support the Fortnight of Action 15. Teams will be wearing anti-racism T-shirts prior to kick off to show their support for Show Racism the Red Card and its anti-racism work.
The Fortnight of Action 15 forms part of the FARE Football People action weeks and is supported by the Football Association of Wales. This year’s Fortnight of Action will see 56 clubs, featuring over 1000 players across 8 leagues all unite to challenge discrimination and celebrate the contribution we all make to football, wherever we live, whatever our connection to the game and whatever our background.
What started as a minor campaign in nine countries in 2001 has now become the largest series of anti-discrimination activities in sport. In 2014, over 2,000 activities took place in 59 countries, with some of Europe’s top stars lending support to the campaign.
All UEFA Europa League, Champions League and EURO 2016 Qualifying matches took part in the campaign, reaching fans directly at the matches and millions more through television. In 2014, 24 leagues participated in the Action Weeks and 18 European FAs actively supported the initiative.
The support from the Welsh clubs has helped SRt
RC progress their work in Wales. Last season the campaign worked with over 20,000 young people and held 28 educational events at stadiums across the country supported by professional players. This season the campaign will be delivering Educational Events with 30 clubs funded by the Football Association of Wales.
Football is a sport that is followed by all, and should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background.
