The Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) has shown its continued support for UEFA's Respect and Unite Against Racism campaigns ahead of next week's keynote conference on the issue in Warsaw.
Children wearing T-shirts carrying anti-racism slogans were present on the pitch prior to the kick-off of Greece's recent friendly match with Denmark in Piraeus. Banners and the tickets for the game also carried the Respect and Unite Against Racism logos to give added impetus to UEFA's on-going campaign to raise awareness of the need for greater tolerance and mutual respect between fans, players, coaches and officials at all levels of the game.
Those themes will constitute a key part of the agenda of the Unite Against Racism conference being staged by UEFA, the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network, and the players' union FIFPro in the Polish capital Warsaw on 3 and 4 March, the third time such a forum has been held. Some 250 delegates representing a wide cross-section of those involved in football, from national associations and clubs to non-governmental organisations and the media, have been invited to the conference to review the progress made on the issue to date. Discussions will also take place on how best to develop positive and practical solutions to address the matter in the build-up to UEFA EURO 2012™, which is to be hosted jointly by Poland and Ukraine.
Media are welcomed to cover the opening of the conference (3 March, 18.30 to 20.00CET), the plenary session (4 March, 09.00 to 10.30CET and 15.30 to 18.00CET) as well as a press conference which will be held on 4 March at 12.30CET, at the Hilton Hotel & Convention Centre in Warsaw. There will be a media working area, and applications for accreditation should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, prior to Friday 27 February 12.00CET, mentioning UAR Conference in the subject header.
