Show Racism the Red Card are delighted to announce that former professional footballer, and now Coventry City Football Club manager, Mark Robins, has agreed to become a patron of the anti-racism educational charity. Robins, who is currently the manager at League Two side Coventry City, made over 400 professional appearances during his playing career where he played for clubs such as Manchester United FC, Norwich City FC Leicester City FC and Rotherham United FC.
Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive, Ged Grebby, said;
“It is great to have another manager on board of our campaign. Managers are key to ensuring our football club educational events are a success and we look forward to working closely with Mark and Coventry City Football Club next season. As the recent hate crime figures show, racism is a growing problem in the UK and we need to step up our efforts of combating racism through anti-racism education.”
Coventry City manager, Mark Robbins, said;
"Thank you for contacting me regarding the patrons list of Show Racism the Red Card. I would be delighted to join the list of managers supporting the campaign and look forward to working alongside such a fantastic organisation such as yourselves."
Everyone at Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Mark for agreeing to become a patron and we wish him, and Coventry City Football Club, the best of luck in the play-offs.
