SRtRC Fortnight of Action

Thu, 4th Oct 2018 11:15pm

Clyde FC are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card's Fortnight of Action. The SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 15 years ago.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC's work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 5th to 19th October, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend – Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

Fans are urged to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces. 

Clyde manager, Danny Lennon said:

"I have been a great supporter of the Show Racism the Red Card initiative since its inception. Racism should not be tolerated in any form, in any area of society. It certainly has no place in football, a sport which can and should be used as a force for good in our communities."

Clyde FC condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
