Airbus UK Broughton will this weekend engage with Show Racism the Red Card Weekend at their Fixture against Neath at the Airfield on Sunday 17th October with a 2pm Kick Off.

Please read below for more information on what the event is all about:



Show Racism the Red Card’s annual Fortnight of Action takes place in Wales from 15th - 31st October, 2010.


This period of concerted action encourages participation from all sections of communities to celebrate diversity and tackle racism. A major aim of the Fortnight of Action is to encourage anti-racist actions, events and initiatives to take place throughout the year. Many organisations begin their actions during October and run follow-up events during the year. One proven way of making a difference is to act on a local level to break down barriers that lead to racist attitudes and behaviour. These barriers can include:



  • Racial stereotyping
  • Ignorance of other cultures
  • Excluding practices
  • The idea that any one culture or racial group is superior to another

  • This year’s SRTRC Fortnight of Action will once again see players in Wales show their support for the anti-racist cause. Action at games will include:



1 Players wearing SRtRC RED T-shirts

2 Players ‘RED card’ action at WPL games
3 Anti-racist tannoy announcements
4 Articles in match programmes
5 Articles on club websites
6 Unveiling of anti-racist stadium hoardings
7 Involvement with local clubs and communities

Football is a sport that is followed by all, and should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their racial or ethnic background. We hope you enjoy the game this weekend and ask you to support the player’s action before kick-off.
