UEFA and FARE: a decade of progress talks to Piara Powar, executive director of the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network, about the progress made during the group's ten-year association with UEFA.

FARE's Piara Powar explains his involvement in the Europe-wide fight against racism in football.

In 2001 the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network joined forces with UEFA. Ten years on, talks to their executive director Piara Powar about the progress that has been made.

"It has been a very productive decade for us," Powar told "Working with the European governing body, the confederation, has been very, very important for two reasons. One, to allow us to get our message across more efficiently, to get it out in a targeted way, and to work with the football family in a united front.

"Secondly, because unfortunately there remains a problem of racism and other forms of discrimination in the game, so seeing it from a very practical point of view it's a problem that needs to be addressed," Powar added. "I think we have made some good progress in getting some very strong messages out there, mixing them with positive solutions."

The UEFA-FARE partnership will again be on show on UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matchday three, when FARE's Annual Action Weeks receive the endorsement of European football's governing body. Clubs across the continent will once more be encouraged to challenge discrimination.
