Hamilton Academical FC are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card’s Fortnight of Action.
Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years, the SPFL and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 16 years ago.
In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from October 4 to October 20, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.
All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend – Friday, October 4 to Sunday, October 6. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European countries are involved in similar events as part of the FARE network against racism and discrimination.
We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.
Team captain Darian MacKinnon said: “There’s no place for racism in football or anywhere for that matter. I and everyone at Accies condemn that sort of behaviour and it will not be accepted anywhere near our club.”
Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair, inclusive and accessible for all.
Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
