The Irish Football Association and SRtRC work together to create a fun, safe and inclusive culture throughout Football
“The Irish FA is committed to tackling racism and is proud to partner with SRtRC."
Northern Ireland manager, Michael O'Neill
On Friday 13th November mascots at Windsor Park wore Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) t-shirts prior to kick-off, this came from continued partnership work between The Irish Football Association and Show Racism the Red Card.
The partnership which started on 10th September as a result of the Irish FA’s launch of its new Youth Football Strategy, Let Them Play, has allowed both organisations to work together to reach common goals.
Northern Ireland manager, Michael O'Neill, had this to say;
“The Irish FA is committed to tackling racism and is proud to partner with SRtRC. Football is a great hook for educating people to respect diversity. Football for all is what we do and our message is Let Them Play. Creating a fun, safe and inclusive culture throughout all we do has built the platform for all our recent success both on and off the pitch.”
Ged Grebby, CEO of SRtRC, added;
“We share the same goals as the Irish FA when it comes to creating a fun, safe and inclusive culture throughout football. The Irish FA has a brilliant reach through schools and football clubs; and we have some fantastic resources which can be used to educate young people about diversity. Together we can make a difference and we are delighted to now have an official presence in Northern Ireland. We look forward to growing this partnership”.
