Football Unites Racism Divides in Italian

18 Dec 2007 / News

On 1st December in Italy, at the Sampdoria-Reggina match, the players displayed a banner on the pitch with the words 'Il Calcio Unisce Il Razzismo Divide' - Italian for 'Football Unites Racism Divides'. As well as marking (a little late!) FARE's Anti-Racism Action Week, the display was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the Sampdoria Fans group ('Rude Boys and Girls') who marked the occasion by organising an anti-racist tournament.
