The Fare network is an umbrella organisation that brings together everyone driven to combat inequality in football and to send out a unified message against discrimination. Fare’s commitment to tackle discrimination through football’s inclusive power is based on the principle that the game, as the most popular sport in the world, belongs to us all.

Building on previous hugely successful working with Show Racism the Red Card Mossend FC as a community club wants to remain involved and are looking at further initiatives to champion equality.

Yesterday and the 22nd Oct over 60 kids will take part in Mossend FC’s Mini Champions League tournament. This will include children from two age groups from Mossend FC and kids of the same age from the Lanarkshire Mosque combined to make up the teams. This continues the partnership between Mossend FC and the Lanarkshire Mosque to allow all children from the area to train and play football irrespective of background and religion.

Russell Sanderson, Club Publicity & Development Secretary at Mossend FC said:

“Mossend FC feel that this is another excellent opportunity for the club, the boys and all taking part to send out a real message that racism and inequality have no place in society and particularly in our area of sport.

The Football People action weeks unites supporters, clubs, ethnic minorities and communities affected by discrimination across the continent in an effort to make discrimination a thing of the past.

Mossend FC are proud and excited by the prospect of working with Fare now and in the future, there will be people and kids like us taking part in nearly 400 events for the action weeks in over 60 countries that Fare are supporting. This is massive and we at Mossend FC want to be part of that”

“We wish to make clear that we Mossend FC firmly stand against all forms of discrimination and inequality. “
