41 projects will contribute towards tackling the long and historical issue of racial injustice in football and society. Fare opened up the scheme in June following the global outcry over the killing of George Floyd (and many others), recognising that we all have a responsibility to act and build a future in which everyone is equal.

The activities being wide-ranging in their scope and reach, ranging from exploring how to get more black people into sports administration, educational resources, podcasts, training programmes, exhibitions and storytelling around black athletes and players, a legal rights awareness workshop for amateurs players and a focus on the black LGBTIQ community in sport.

Piara Powar, the Executive Director of the Fare network said, “The response to this call has been overwhelming, in the coming months we will see groups in 22 countries and four continents set agendas and contribute to creating lasting change throughout Europe, Africa, the US and South America.”

Over the coming months we will be showcasing the most successful events across farenet.org and on social media channels.

The 41 grants of up to €1000 have been awarded to the following groups.
