FARE at the World Cup 200608 June 2006

What has kicked-off sucessfully at the EURO 2004 in Portugal, will now see a further development at the FIFA World Cup in Germany. Under the slogan Football Unites the FARE network will carry out an anti-racism programme, which is backed by the German World Cup Organising Committee and FIFA.

1. A mobile Streetkick game will tour eleven host cities. Supporters and ethnic minorities will have the opportunity to get closed by the means of street football. The tours is accompanied by an exhibition displaying examples of anti-racism work in football across Europe.

2. A bilingual anti-racism fanzine features among others statements of 19 participating national team captains, where they speak out against racism and discrimination.
