Launch new European funded programme
16 July 2019
This month a new European funded ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ programme will be launched in collaboration with Brentford FC, Chelsea FC, Club Brugge, Inter Milan, Rangers FC, SL Benfica, Werder Bremen, SRtRC Netherlands and the EFDN Foundation.
The 24-month anti-racism and anti-discrimination programme will utilise the high-profile status of football to help tackle racism and other forms of discrimination in society. The project aims to raise awareness of diversity, foster social cohesion and reduce physical and verbal violence linked to racism.
The programme’s output includes awareness campaigns in stadiums and in grassroots clubs, educational programmes for schools and workplaces, as well as events to promote diversity through football.
The first international meeting will be held in on the 2nd and 3rd of September 2019 in London at Stamford Bridge, home of Chelsea FC.
