The Action Weeks bring people together
The FARE Action Weeks unites supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by other forms of discrimination across the continent in a concerted effort to make discrimination a thing of the past.
The idea behind the Action Weeks is that a wide range of initiatives and activities that address local problems within their club or community and join groups across the continent to present a unified stand against discrimination in the game.

And in addition to this, we’ve created some resources for clubs and FA’s to use around their matches during the AW. There are big screen images for stadium scoreboards and also advertisements for match day programmes. These are all available in English, French, Spanish, Italian and German and also in various colours to match the clubs’ colours. You’ll find this here: http://farenet.org/default.asp?intPageID=313
The Action Weeks aim to:
- Increase public awareness of the discrimination in football
- Create a united front by bringing together everyone in football
- Develop ideas and new practices that challenge exclusion
A key part of the activities are the events that further social inclusion by bringing people of different communities together through sport.What started as a minor campaign in nine countries in 2001 has now become the largest series of anti-discrimination activities in sport. In 2011 activities took place in 41 countries with some of Europe‘s top stars lending support to the campaign.
