We are hosting our Show Racism the Red Card Month of Action fixture against Baglan Dragons on Saturday 14th October at the Ogi Bridge Meadow.
The Haverfordwest County players will be holding up Show Racism the Red Card cards before the match to promote an anti-racism message and demonstrate our stance against racism in sports and society.
Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. They aim to combat racism by enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.
Show Racism the Red Card acknowledges that racism changes, as do the experiences of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities in the UK. The message and activities, therefore, need to be able to respond to such changes as and when appropriate.
They achieve this through:
• Producing and delivering educational resources
• Developing activities to encourage people, including young people, to challenge racism
• Challenging racism in the game of football and other sports
During October, football clubs across Wales show their support for Show Racism the Red Card by delivering a matchday action demonstrating their stance on eradicating racism from the beautiful game. These actions act as a vehicle to deliver an anti-racism message to the community through the power of sport.
We hope you enjoy the game today and ask you to support the players’ actions and join us in saying NO to racism! If you see or hear racism at any level of football, please report it to the nearest steward / Club official or report to FAW via https://faw.cymru/reportit
