Supporting Show Racism the Red Card and Challenging Discrimination

21 October 2021

Throughout October Cardiff City FC Foundation has been showing our support for the Show Racism the Red Card Month of Action, highlighting an Anti-Racism message within our communities through the power of football.

Racism and discrimination have a profound and corrosive impact on our communities. They exacerbate inequalities. They create fear and mistrust. They exploit vulnerabilities.

We all need to think hard about what we need to do to encourage more inclusive behaviours, tackle racism and discrimination, celebrate diversity and create lasting change.

Young People from Premier League Inspires take part in an Anti-Racism Workshop

Working alongside Show Racism the Red Card Wales through the month of October, Foundation participants have been taking part in anti-racism and discrimination workshops.

This type of education is essential for young people to recognise and challenge racist and discriminatory behaviours, report it and contribute to removing racism from society.

The Foundation's Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion lead, Chris Foot said:

"It's important that we provide the young people we work with the opportunity to access information around racism and discrimination so they can understand and challenge the behaviours of those who think it's acceptable.

The Foundation will continue to work with our partners, beneficiaries to ensure our communities are welcoming and inclusive."

Saturday 23rd October marks Cardiff City’s designated Show Racism the Red Card fixture. Together with Cardiff City Football Club, the Foundation will be re-enforcing Anti-Racism messages and raising awareness about the impact that racism can have in our communities.

Show Racism the Red Card’s Month of Action aims to unite supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by discrimination, increase public awareness and tackle discrimination in football.
