Opponents on the pitch, but partners in the fight for Respect, Equality and Diveristy. This weekend, AEK Athens FC and Asteras Tripolis FC showed racism the red card before the kick-off of their game. The game between the Greek clubs that play in the Super League Interwetten ended in a 2-2 draw.
Both teams took a stand against racism by joining the European-wide anti-racism campaign. The awareness-raising campaign, or the Red Card campaign, consists of disseminating our Red Cards in 27 languages to professional and grassroots clubs all over Europe. By taking pictures and videos of players with the Red Card, clubs take a stand against racism. The cards are free to download from our website. Currently with AEK FC and Asteras Tripolis FC as the newest partners, there are emore than 50 clubs, both professional and grassroots, participating in the campaign.
#MORE THAN FOOTBALL
Every year, both Asteras Tripolis FC and AEK Athens participate in the #MoreThanFootball Action Weeks, the global campaign for the European Football community to showcase the impact of their community and social responsibility activities and programmes. Both clubs are making sure that they stand against racism and discrimination and for a safer and more inclusive society.
