Toulouse FC encourages children to create banners to fight against racism and discrimination

Over the past few weeks, children and teenagers have been working alongside Toulouse FC, the Toulouse City Council and the Haute-Garonne department to create banners symbolising their commitment to fighting racism and discrimination.

As part of its educational programme aimed at players from its academy, schoolchildren in Toulouse and secondary school students in the Haute-Garonne department, Toulouse FC goes out to meet young schoolchildren with professional players and players from its first team in division 2, to share the positive values of football and raise awareness about racism and sexism in sport.

Thus, every month, two interventions are organised in different structures through playful games and debates to confront opinions and experiences.

Banners to fight against racism and discrimination

In order to ensure educational continuity and to engage the children in reflection, a competition for the most beautiful banner was organised on the sidelines of the championship match that took place this weekend.

On Friday 10 March, at the Stadium, a jury composed of players rewarded the productions of the CLAE Daste and the Toulouse Lautrec secondary school, in the presence of the President of the Toulouse FC Foundation, Damien Comolli, and the Director of the Education Department of the Toulouse City Council, Frédéric Decourt.

Thus, on Saturday, during the Violets match, dedicated by the LFP to the fight against racism and discrimination, the two winning banners were presented to the twenty-three thousand spectators present and immortalised in the presence of the Toulouse and Lille players.

At half-time of the match, the 15 banners made by the school children were presented to the Stadium audience by our pre-training players who did a lap of honour.

All the banners will be displayed in the city centre of Toulouse at the end of March to show the commitment of the TéFéCé and the City Council, highlighting the work carried out by all the schoolchildren, college students, children and adolescents involved.
