East Fife FC are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Cars Fortnight of Action. Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years; the SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 16 years ago.
In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 4th – 20th 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 support over one weekend – Friday 4th, Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th 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.
We urge fans 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.
Vice-Chairman Dave Marshall is the club’s ambassador for Show Racism the Red Card: “Everyone at East Fife is proud to be supporting this year’s Show Racism the Red Card’s campaign. There is no place for discrimination of any kind within football or the wider society and we are committed to promoting football as inclusive & accessible for all. We are 100% behind this campaign and encourage all football fans to get behind it as well.”
East Fife 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 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.
