Following on from the success of last year's FARE Football People Action Weeks, SARI will be co-ordinating events again this year in the Republic of Ireland. As part of the programme we will be organising matches between residents of Direct Provison Centres - and other communities at risk of discrimination - and their local Airtricity League Club...

Last year a number of matches took place against Drogheda United, St. Patrick's Athletic, Sligo Rovers, UCD and others. The plan is that the two teams play an 11-a-side match in the club stadium and meet for tea and refreshments afterwards.

We would also hope that the League of Ireland clubs would extend an invitation to their guests to one of their home matches.

SARI will also be travelling around the country delivering football training sessions and anti-discrimination workshops during the two week period to children aged 11-14. If your community, school or organisation would like to take part in this then please contact us at: info@sari.ie

The first match will take place on Tuesday 6th October with St. Patrick's Athletic hosting Hatch Hall Direct Provision Centre at Richmond Park, Inchicore, Dublin.

A full list of games, training sessions, workshops and other events will be posted shortly.
