Caerphilly supports show racism the red card day of action

October 13, 2021

In partnership with Show Racism the RED Card (SRtRC) on their Day of Action, Caerphilly held a training session teaching raising awareness on the importance of challenging racial prejudice.

Racism continues to be an issue in our society with many people suffering abuse each day. As part of the FARE Network Football People Weeks, SRtRC’s annual fundraiser ‘Wear Red Day’ takes place on the 16th of October and is vital in helping the anti-racism charity raise funds to support SRtRC schools programmes, in addition to raising awareness and educating young people and teachers to embed anti-racism in their establishments.

Caerphilly understands that whilst there has been some progress made in football, there is more that must be done, which is why the Caerphilly suppor the FAWs Equality, Diversity and Inclusion plan for Welsh Football. Education is vital and alongside SRtRC, a range of educational seminars and resources are being developed for the wider football family. Challenging racism in football and society is a collective responsibility and there is a need for support across the whole football family in Wales.

If you, a teammate, colleague or opponent are subject to racism, please don’t ignore it, report it at caerphilly.social@hotmail.com
