18 March 2021 - 24 March 2021
The Show Racism the Red Card Europe ‘Solidarity Week’ will take place from the 18th of March until the 24th of March. The aim of the week is to promote solidarity and diversity in European football.
EFDN and Show Racism the Red Card Europe project partners organise the awareness campaign. All football organisations, grassroots and professionals, are invited to join our activities and use our free campaign material to make a stand for solidarity and diversity.
We will team up with clubs, leagues, FAs, the International Weeks against Racism, share best practices and tips, and contribute to the longest human solidarity chain in football.
How to participate

Join our #Morethanfootball Solidarity Chain
For the 5th anniversary of the #Morethanfootball Action Weeks, together with clubs, leagues and FAs, we want to demonstrate our solidarity and share the spirit of #Morethanfootball online. To create the chain, we ask you to take a picture of your players, staff, volunteers, participants, beneficiaries or others giving their hands to someone outside of the picture frame. Side by side, we will make the longest human solidarity chain in European football. Create additional videos to make your solidarity chains even more interactive and inspirational.
Post from 24th of March onwards, please use #morethanfootball, #DiversityWins and tag our social media accounts so we can share your posts and activities.
