The England Manager, Gareth Southgate, has sent a message of support backing Show Racism the Red Card for the FIFA Diversity Award 2018.
As a long standing patron of SRtRC, Gareth has supported the campaign’s educational work for many years and has been involved in many events including attending the 2017 School Competition Awards Ceremony as the guest of honour.
“I’m delighted that Show Racism the Red Card has been nominated for such a prestigious award. As a long-standing patron of the charity, I have witnessed first-hand the great work that they do in educating young people on the importance of equality, diversity and inclusion.
It’s important that young people grow up knowing that there is no place for discrimination in society and Show Racism the Red Card continue to be at the forefront of that message.”
Show Racism the Red Card are excited and humbled to be considered for this award and are extremely grateful to Gareth Southgate and the FA for their backing and for all the support received from across the football world.
