European football and the Football People action weeks

From Croatia to Spain, the Fare action weeks have seen support across Europe with clubs, players, professional leagues and national associations getting behind the message of inclusivity.

The FA’s of Austria, Hungary, Ireland, Malta, Moldova, Northern Ireland and Switzerland have expressed their support by dedicating match-days and organising anti-discrimination initiatives during the period.

Swiss coach Ottmar Hitzfeld led the way, “It seems obvious to me and my team to get involved in this campaign against racism and discrimination. We are happy to kick-off the Fare Action Weeks activities in Switzerland at the match against Slovenia”.

The Austrian Bundesliga and most of the Swiss leagues (Raiffeisen Super League, Challenge League Brack.ch, amateur 2 Interregional league, Swiss Women’s National League A and B) have made public statements encouraging the campaign and asked their clubs to get involved.

Similarly, the Welsh leagues and the Greek Super League have dedicated match-days to the initiative.
In France, leagues 1 and 2 have worked with Fare partner Licra to dedicate the period to publicising a mobile application that encourages supporters and other to take action against racism. In the US the Major Soccer League have publicised their support.
