Call for Action: FARE Action Week25 August 2005

The annual FARE Action Week against Racism and Discrimination has grown over last five season into Europes biggest anti-racism campaign in football. Last year more than 33 countries got involved in a united effort to rid the game from racism and discrimination.

This October, the 6th FARE Action Week (13-25 October 2005) will once again feature activities by fans, players, clubs, associations, minority organisations, anti-discrimination groups, schools and the sports media. A highlight of the week of action will be the anti-racism activities at all UEFA Champions League matches during this period.

The Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network in partnership with UEFA calls upon the entire European football family to get involved in the forthcoming FARE Action Week. The idea for the season 2005/2006 is to call for specific action both inside and outside football stadiums to encourage and increase migrants and ethnic minorities participation at all levels of the game.

To find out how you can join the Action Week, please see the Guidelines and Application in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian, which can be down-loaded from the FARE web-site.
