The Club is raising awareness of Football People - an international anti-discrimination and inclusion campaign - ahead of tonight’s Champions League match against Crvena zvezda
(Red Star Belgrade).
Organised by UEFA’s social responsibility partner, Fare, the Football People weeks aim to tackle discrimination and promote social inclusion in the European game. The campaign is backed by #EqualGame, UEFA’s initiative to highlight the importance of inclusion, diversity and accessibility across the continent.
As part of our support, players will have a team photo with the #EqualGame hashtag, plus a mixed team photo with the referee prior to kick-off. #EqualGame announcements and videos will be played at various intervals before the match. Our Captain will also wear a “RESPECT” armband.
Football People weeks is the largest campaign of its kind in European football, with over 150,000 people joining events in 60 countries last year. This year’s campaign is taking place between 10 and 24 October, bringing together professional football clubs and associations, NGOs, supporters and communities to work for positive change.
