The Diversity House structure consists of a small exhibition curated and produced by Fare that takes fans on a journey that begins in the late 1800s as it celebrates pioneers from ethnic minorities and leading women in the sport.
The idea borrows from the Pride House concept that debuted at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics as a dedicated location that hosted lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) athletes, volunteers and visitors attending the Olympics and Paralympics. The presence of LGBT footballers is covered within the exhibition.
The House made its debut in Stockholm at UEFA Europe League final and will now be on display from tomorrow until Sunday (01 – 04 June) in Cardiff in the lead up to Saturday’s Champions League Final.
Fare staff will be supporting all visitors and providing information about Fare’s work, free resources and Fare merchandising can also be acquired inside the House. Football fans can also visit to compete in table football matches or try to beat a ‘kick pro’ machine.
The Diversity House will be located at the UEFA Champions Festival in Cardiff Bay from 11am to 11pm between 01-04 June.
