PFC Ludogorest joins Show Racism the Red Card campaign
Bulgarian club PFC Ludogorets from Razgrad is the latest club to join the Show Racism the Red Card campaign. Ludogorets, currently on top of the table in the Bulgarian League, is the first club from Bulgaria to join the European wide anti-racism campaign. On top of participating in the Red Card campaign, Ludogorets is currently working on designing anti-racism workshops and if the local COVID19 measures allow it, they will soon deliver the Diversity Wins educational programme as well.
MORE THAN Football
PFC Ludogorets 1945 actively uses the power of football to support a broad range of youth activities in the community. The club is a member of the European Football for Development Network. Through organising and financing activities for young people, the club aims at providing young people with opportunities to participate in inspiring and engaging initiatives focused on education and physical activity. The club is very aware of the influence it has to motivate, inspire and educate young people on a local, regional and national level.
As the club has been sanctioned by UEFA for racist abuse by a group of fans, the club has committed itself to tackling racism. Show Racism the Red Card is glad to count PFC Ludogorets as a partner in the fight against racism. If the COVID19 measures allow it, the #DiversityWins educational programme will be another ‘Good example project’ that the club delivers. A-team players and coaches of the club will visit schools, kindergartens, hospitals, primary schools, high schools, universities, associations and clubs on a regular basis. Racism and discrimination will be targeted by the club.
