Swansea City are backing Show Racism the Red Card

21st October 2016

Swansea City will be supporting Show Racism the Red Card Fortnight of Action when they host Watford this weekend.
Both teams will be wearing anti-racism T-shirts prior to kick-off and will jointly support an anti-racism message. 
Show Racism the Red Card is the UK's anti-racism educational charity. 
The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and its 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.
While football has been helping raise awareness and the fight against racism in society, there is still plenty of work to do.
The club has a zero-tolerance policy to racism and other forms of discrimination and individuals not only face criminal procedures through the courts, but life bans from the Liberty.
This year's Fortnight of Action will see clubs and players across Wales 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 10,000 young people and held 28 educational events at stadiums, including the Liberty, across the country which were 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. 
All complaints regarding racist behaviour should be made to your nearest steward or the club.
