FARE FOOTBALL PEOPLE ACTION WEEKS 2014

SARI have been appointed by FARE to co-ordinate the Football People Action Weeks in Ireland. This year’s events will take place between the 9th and the 23rd of October 2014.

The FARE Football People Action Weeks unites supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by discrimination by celebrating the contribution everyone makes to the game of football. Founded in 2001 the Fare Action Week campaign began in only 9 countries but has fast become the largest series of anti-discrimination activities in world sport. In 2013 over 1,500 activities took place in 46 countries including 18 professional leagues with 17 European FA's supporting the initiative.

A key objective of both FARE and SARI is to promote social inclusion and cultural integration through our events, bringing together diverse communities through sport. Last year's activities ranged from sports tournaments, open forums on racism, round table discussions, workshops in schools and many other innovative projects.

This year, there are a number of small grants (up to €400) available. The grants are designed to fund activities at local and regional level that take place within clubs or communities. These initiatives should tackle discrimination, promote social inclusion and bring people from different communities together through sport. The application forms for these community grants will be available from 1st August - 7th September and can be found at:
