A.F.C Bournemouth Head Coach, Eddie Howe
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is delighted to announce that current A.F.C Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has recently shown his support for the campaign.
Eddie joins a group of managers, current and former players who have also shown their support for the campaign which includes Viv Anderson, John Barnes, Gary Lineker, Hope Powell and Cesc Fabregas.
Eddie Howe, A.F.C Bournemouth Head Coach:
“I am pleased to reaffirm AFC Bournemouth’s support for the Show Racism the Red Card campaign. Education is key if we are going to challenge racism and the work of this charity has made a real difference in both football and society. We look forward to our educational session at our club as part of our anti-racism activities.”
SRtRC uses the high profile of professional footballers and managers to talk to young people about racism. Role-models can have a tremendously positive impact on the attitudes of young people to this issue.
Ged Grebby, Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card said:
“It is great to see a young manager in the premier league renewing his support for the campaign on behalf of himself and A.F.C Bournemouth. Since the campaign was set up in 1996 we have seen the positive impact role models, like Eddie, can have on encouraging young people to reject racism in all forms.”
