Tomorrow is the last day of the FARE fortnight and what a time it has been with a record number of clubs and schools getting involved alongside national league clubs in the SSE Airtricity League. We have seen 4511 players at all levels of the game involved in taking a stand against racism and to say ‘we are for Equal Game’.
In addition, we have seen the FAI bring the Show Racism the Red Card message to over 7,000 children in 135 schools in all four provinces of Ireland. This means that in 2018, we have had more participants in FARE fortnight of action than in any year previously.
Football is a game open to all, regardless of age, gender, nationality, religion, culture or disability. You can get involved and clubs are willing to take a stand for EqualGame and TackleRacism. Watch this space for updated reports over the next weeks.
In the meantime, you can still get involved with another Show Racism the Red Card programme and just as exciting. On November 23rd, we are hosting Wear Red Day #WRD18 for the third time and we invite you, wherever you are, to wear red to make a stand against racism and to donate to us, to help us develop the anti racism education packs we will launch soon.
