“Stamping racism out at any level of football is very important and we do good work here at Luton, where we are situated at the heart of a multi-cultural community. We are very aware of that and want to do all that we can to support any initiative that aims to advance equality and inclusion in the game, so I am proud to become a patron for Show Racism the Red Card.”
