We are Football People says the Greek Council for Refugees

One of the largest social activities in sport launches this week with the FARE Action Weeks bringing together hundreds of thousands of people across Europe in a message against discrimination and in celebration of diversity.

The Action Weeks taking place from the 16th October to the 31st reflect a united stand against discrimination across Europe. They are headlined Football People to reflect the fact that football can transcend all barriers. The FARE movement believes that whatever our social, ethnic, religious background, or our gender or sexuality, we are all Football People.

The Greek Council for Refugees (GCR) is proud to be part of the Action Weeks and we will be organizing activities on the 19th and the 20th of October in Athens. We will join over 300 groups across 41 countries who are involved, from community groups to UEFA Champions League and Europa League matches which will feature activities during the two weeks of action.

Michel Platini, President of European governing body UEFA, gave his support to the period this week by saying, “I am proud to be part of the ‘Football People’ campaign which highlights UEFA's commitment to tackling discrimination in football in partnership with the FARE network for over 10 years”.

“We have worked side by side the FARE network on what is a central pillar in European football and will continue to strive towards a respect for diversity in the game’.
