The ‘Let’s Kick Racism out of the Stadiums’ exhibition, organised by the Fare member ‘NEVER AGAIN’ Association, tells the stories and contributions made by players of ethnic minority backgrounds to the country’s football and raises awareness of discrimination in the game.

The initiative also celebrates the legacy of the ‘RESPECT Diversity – Football Unites’ campaign against racism in football grounds, organised by Fare and the Polish association, during the Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

“We watch with horror the tragic events that have unfolded in Ukraine over in these last few days and we hope that through this exhibition we can bring back some of the best moments of the event that both nations hosted” said the ‘Never AGAIN’ Association representative, Rafal Pankowski.

The launch event was attended by the Polish Equality Minister, Agnieszka Kozlowska-Rajewicz, the MP for the Parliamentary Committee on Physical Culture, Sports and Tourism, Artur Gorczynski, and hosted by the Deputy Speaker Wanda Nowicka.
