Swans and Stoke support Show Racism the Red Card message
19th October 2015
The Swans and Stoke City will be supporting Show Racism the Red Card's Fortnight of Action at the Liberty Stadium tonight.
Both teams will wear anti-racism t-shirts prior to kick off (8pm) and jointly support an anti-racism message.
Show Racism the Red Card is the UK's leading anti-racism educational charity. The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and footballers to help tackle racism in society. The campaign delivers educational workshops to young people and adults in their schools, workplaces and at events held in stadiums.
A total of 56 clubs in Wales, featuring over 1000 players across eight leagues, all unite to challenge discrimination and celebrate the contribution we all make to football, wherever we live, whatever our connection to the game and whatever our background.
The support from the Welsh clubs has helped SRtRC progress their work in Wales. Last season the campaign worked with over 20,000 young people and held 28 educational events at stadiums across the country supported by professional players.
Football is a sport that is followed by all, and should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their racial or ethnic background.
We hope you enjoy the game today and ask you to support the players' action before kick-off.
