Football People weeks of action
The #FootballPeople weeks unite supporters, clubs, players, minority groups and communities affected by discrimination to stand for equality and inclusion.
The largest campaign for social change and diversity in global football.
The #FootballPeople weeks is the largest campaign for social
change and diversity in global football. During a two-week period over
150,000 people in more than 50 countries organise and participate in
events and activities to bring about social change.
Who is it for?
The #FootballPeople weeks were open to everyone regardless of who you are or what your role in football is. Supporters, players, clubs, ethnic minorities, LGBTIQ+ groups, women’s groups, activists, schools and NGOs all take an active role. #FootballPeople activists are united in their love for the game and the belief that football belongs to everyone and can be used to create positive change. We want you to be involved irrespective of origin, race, religion, gender or sexuality.
In recent years activities have taken place across the globe in Argentina, Brazil, Cameroon, Mexico, Vietnam, Thailand, the United States and South Africa; supported by some of the biggest stars of football, such as Yaya Touré, Iker Casillas, Didier Drogba, Thomas Hitzlsperger, Marco Verratti, Claudio Marchisio, and Edinson Cavani.
