Show Racism the Red Card


The Club fully endorses the aims of Show Racism the Red Card.

Show Racism the Red Card is part of the FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) network.

Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racist charity which was established in January 1996 with the aim of using Professional footballers as anti-racist role models. Although racism is on the decline in professional football, it is unfortunately on the increase in British and indeed European society. The aim of the campaign is to combat racism through anti-racist education and professional footballers are showing the way in terms of making a stand and fighting racism.
