Show Racism the Red Card support continues

Ross County FC are proudly continuing their support to Show Racism the Red Card’s Match Actions Campaign during their match with Hearts on Sunday 30th October.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism Education Charity, and Ross County FC has supported their messages of tolerance and inclusion for many years. Now more than ever, the importance of active anti-racism cannot be overstated.

Across Scottish football, clubs will show their commitment to anti-racism over one weekend – Friday 28th, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October. In doing so they can raise the profile of year round commitment to anti-racism within football. Show Racism the Red Card works within schools, workplaces, sport, and community organisations to educate children, young people, and adults on challenging prejudice and stereotypes, using the power of football as a powerful tool to initiate conversations about anti-racism. They ran educational programmes with over 10,000 participants in Scotland over the past year.

At Ross County they recognize the importance of being alert to the inequalities that persist due to racism. A recent SRtRC survey revealed 46% of staff are aware of racist bullying or discrimination in Scottish schools, while 66.4% are aware of pupils expressing misconceptions, stereotypes, or negative attitudes that are racist.

“We are delighted with the support for anti-racism that exists within Scottish football and are very proud of our upcoming match actions. However the work must continue. We call on our supporters to continue to challenge racism. It is a shared responsibility across the game, from dressing rooms to boardrooms, and from stadiums to social media, to ensure that an anti-racism ethos is maintained throughout the year.”

Chris Priestly, Show Racism the Red Card

“It is great that again the SPFL, SWFL and the clubs will be supporting Show Racism the Red Card. I have touched on it previously that the world has become a better place by having diverse cultures within our communities and it is important that we continue to support this. Show Racism the Red Card allows us all, collectively, to stand very firm together against racial prejudice, racism and racist behaviour. Together we can make a difference.”

Keith Watson, Ross County Club Captain

Ross County FC stands with everyone who has had to endure racial prejudice in all areas of their lives. We condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated at our club.

Football is a sport that is loved across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for everyone, of all backgrounds. Education is the key and Ross County will support Show Racism the Red Card to ensure Scotland is equipped with the tools to challenge and eradicate racism from football and society.
