During October clubs in Wales are showing their support for the Show Racism the Red Card Month of
Action as a vehicle to deliver an Anti-Racism message to the community through the power of sport.

This weekend will see us host a Day of Action in our match against Backfield & Langley, both teams will be
wearing anti-racism T-shirts prior to kick off and will be uniting together to stand against racism.

Our club ambassador this season is Mackenzie Thomas, who shared his thoughts on racism
in football saying: " Racism in football is ever growing therefore supporting this campaign is a massive thing to all that suffer racise abuse. I would like encourage everybody at the football club to help grow and support this campaign over the weekend". 

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. The organisation utilises
the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society. The campaign
delivers educational workshops to young people and adults in their schools, workplaces and at events held
in stadiums.

The Show Racism the Red Card action weeks forms part of the Football Against Racism in Europe
(FARE)  Football People Action Weeks .

The Action Weeks aim to unite supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by
discrimination, Increases public awareness and tackle discrimination in football.

The Action Weeks challenges discrimination, promotes integration values amongst youth and celebrate the
input of all individuals that strive to make football a game for all, regardless of who we are, where we are
from and what our beliefs are.

In addition to increasing the awareness of the campaigns work and messages, the ‘Day of Action’ will also
help clubs underline and draw attention to the work that they are already doing to challenge racism and
promote equality.

The support from clubs continues to help the campaign progress their work in Wales. Last season the
campaign worked with over 20,000 young people and held a number of educational events at stadiums
across the country supported by professional players. The campaign will be expanding their program of
challenging racism in football during this season, to work with more grassroots clubs and players across
Wales.

Football is a sport that is followed by all, and should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their
racial or ethnic background.
We hope you enjoy the game today and ask you to support the player’s action and join us in saying NO to
racism!
If you see or hear racism at any level of football, please report it to the nearest steward or club official.
