UEFA's partners in the battle to eliminate racism, the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) movement, holds its eighth annual Action Week from 17 to 30 October, and both bodies have joined together to call for support.
The FARE Action Week against Racism and Discrimination has grown over the last six seasons into European football's biggest anti-racism campaign. Last year more than 35 countries were involved in a united effort to rid the game of racism and discrimination. This October, the Action Week will once again feature activities by fans, players, clubs, associations, minority organisations, anti-discrimination groups, youth centres, schools and the sports media. A highlight of the week of action will be anti-racism activities at all the UEFA Champions League matches during this period.
The FARE network, in partnership with UEFA, calls upon the entire European football family to get involved in the FARE Action Week. The emphasis this season is a call for greater participation of ethnic minorities and migrants; inclusion of women and girls and action against homophobia in the game. FARE also aims to encourage more groups in southern Europe to participate in the Action Week.
