Teams show racism the red card
Posted on 24th November 2010
More than 30 teams from the Premier League and Football League have joined up with Show Racism the Red Card and produced special 2010/11 team posters that are now available to download for free from the charity’s website. Copies of the posters are also available by post.
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is an anti-racist educational charity, set up in 1996. They aim to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.
Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are among the first batch of teams to have given their backing to the charity and have their specially-produced posters made available, with more teams set to follow.
Newcastle United defender Sol Campbell and Burnley’s Clarke Carlisle were both announced as the most recent ambassadors to join their ranks, while the charity is hoping to be made the FA’s charity of the year in 2011.
The posters are available as pdfs, or as jpgs for use as desktop wallpapers. You can also request a hard-copy of the poster to adorn your walls, for the price of an SAE (large letter stamp). Simply send your request to Show Racism the Red Card, PO Box 141, Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear, NE26 3YH.
For the full list of available clubs, and details of how to get your poster, visit the Show Racism the Red Card website.
