Show Racism the Red Card
Show Racism the Red Card is a charity that uses football as a vehicle to deliver anti-racist campaigns.
The SPL and its member clubs have supported the Show Racism the Red Card campaign since season 2003/04.
There are two main elements of the campaign – one utilises the profile of football to raise awareness of the issues and sees players involved in educational programmes within schools delivering positive messages that promote tolerance, understanding and mutual respect.
Each year Show Racism the Red Card organises a ‘Fortnight of Action’ to raise awareness of the campaign. The climax of the fortnight is the SPL weekend of action.
The weekend of action involves players from every club warming up in red card t-shirts and displaying red cards before each Clydesdale Bank Premier League fixture, with managers wearing badges in support of the campaign.
The educational workshops are delivered in schools by professional footballers, past and present, direct to school children across the country. The workshops are combined with football coaching sessions and prove popular among those that take part.
Football is a powerful medium to break down and promote tolerance.
The ongoing united action and support of the Show Racism the Red Card campaign sends out a clear and positive message that football is a game to be enjoyed by all.
