UEFA is BACK! and this time they are set out to promote the message of Fare Football People action weeks, across all major UEFA competitions this season, with UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin underlining: “There is no place for racism, discrimination and intolerance in football.
UEFA activities taking place at 94 matches in the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Nations League and the UEFA Women’s Champions League. Players, clubs and national teams involved in these competitions are lending their support to both the Fare network and UEFA, who are committed to fighting for an end to discrimination in football .
“I am glad to offer UEFA’s continued support to Fare for this year’s Football People action weeks,” said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin. “There is no place for racism, discrimination and intolerance in football.
The teams involved in the Football People action weeks will line up for a mixed photo with the referees, while an #EqualGame hashtag will also be on display. All the European football community are set to come together to challenge exclusion and discrimination, and support inclusion and diversity. Together we can send out a strong, united message that any form of discrimination must now belong to the past,” said Fare executive director Piara Powar.
#EqualGame is an evolution of the previous UEFA RESPECT drive ‘No to Racism’.
