Teams show racism the red card

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

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.

Foxes & Bluebirds – two teams, one community

‘Look! They’ve all worn the away strip for today,’ said the old man in the flat cap behind me. I looked across to my left to the Leicester supporters in the away section and they were indeed wearing the same colour shirts. But it was not the team’s regular grey away strip, rather white tee shirts bearing a picture of their late chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha and their tribute to him in a simple two word message, ‘The Boss.’
