Two clubs in the Netherlands recently put aside their differences and joined forces to present a united front against racism. This ground-breaking event occurred before the match between PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord on Sunday 14 March 2004.
Prior to the kick-off, children from both the PSV Juniorclub and the Feyenoord juniorclub (de Kameraadjes) together with players from both teams, held aloft red cards to racism in the centre of the pitch. The children wore FARE branded T-shirts, which also carried the UEFA “Unite against racism” message on the back.
Additionally, the audience were treated to a film highlighting the positive impact players from different backgrounds have made at PSV Eindhoven. The film is a project of local TV channel “Omroep Brabant en PSV” and is now shown before every PSV home match.
