#FootballPeople , the Fare Action Week was a great success

The Football Action Week 2017 took place from 5 to 19 of October. The initiative challenges all forms of discrimination, promotes integration values amongst youth and celebrates the input of all individuals that strive to make football a game for all, regardless of who we are, where we are from and what our beliefs are.

The Football People weeks aim to:

  • Increase public awareness and tackle discrimination in football
  • Act as a means for social change through unified action in football
  • Develop and try out ideas and new practices that challenge exclusion

The period of the campaign comprises of hundreds of events and activities that further social inclusion by bringing people of different communities together through the sport. The Football People action weeks are open for participation to everyone who is involved or interested in the game. They provide an excellent opportunity for community engagement and development. Supporters, players, clubs, ethnic minorities, LGBT groups, activists and NGOs partake and collaborate in new and existing partnerships to take a stand against discrimination and celebrate diversity in football.

This year again, thousands of Football People activities were held across the globe. Bringing together grassroots groups, professional football and minority groups.
