Global & European Guides to Discriminatory Practices in Football

These guides aim to support fans, governing bodies, and individuals involved in football in recognising, preventing, and addressing discriminatory abuse within the sport.

Produced by Fare, these comprehensive guides draw on expert submissions and knowledge gathered from the Fare Observer System at UEFA and FIFA international club and national team events.

While not an exhaustive list, these guides highlight common discriminatory practices observed in football. It's important to note they are not intended as a definitive list of prohibited symbols and codes leading to automatic disciplinary proceedings. Each incident will be assessed individually, considering its unique context.

The guides serve as essential resources to promote inclusivity, respect, and equality in football:
