Swans back Show Racism the Red Card Month of Action

16th October 2017

Swansea City will once again show support for the Show Racism the Red Card Month of Action in order to deliver an anti-racism message to the community through the power of sport.

This weekend will see the club host a Day of Action in our match against Leicester City, with both teams wearing anti-racism t-shirts prior to kick-off as we unite to stand against racism.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and football players 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.

The Show Racism the Red Card Action Week forms part of the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) Football People Action Weeks.

The Action Weeks aim to unite supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by discrimination, increase public awareness and tackle discrimination in football.

The Action Weeks challenge discrimination, promotes integration values amongst youth and celebrate the input of all individuals that strive to make football a game for all, regardless of who we are, where we are from and what our beliefs are.

In addition to increasing the awareness of the campaigns work and messages, the Day of Action will also help clubs underline and draw attention to the work they are already doing to challenge racism and promote equality.

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 and ask you to support the players' actions and join us in saying NO to racism.

If you see or hear racism at any level of football, please report it to the nearest steward or club official.
