PRESS RELEASE

Football Unites at Euro 2012

With a week to go until the start of Euro 2012, the FARE network programme for Poland and Ukraine is making final preparations ahead of a launch in Warsaw next Friday (8 June). 


With concerns over potential racism and far-right activity high on the public agenda, the FARE programme includes an unprecedented level of monitoring at matches and a high profile campaign that comes to a focus at the semi- finals of the tournament.
FARE has been working with UEFA on a ‘Respect Diversity- Football Unites’ programme that will include anti- discrimination messages at every game, a joint protocol on the reporting of incidents, a commitment to take disciplinary sanctions, and a campaign focus at the semi- finals that will see diversity messages from team captains and a giant Tifo display.
The activities in Poland and Ukraine are the culmination of a three-year programme to develop a hub in the region with a focus on education and engagement. The key elements of the FARE activities at Euro 2012 include:
- A total of 30 international monitors - at least two at each of the 31 games
- A reporting hotline for fans to report racist and discriminatory incidents
- Up to 300 public areas self- declared as Inclusivity Zones to provide welcoming spaces across Poland and Ukraine
- A fanzine in four languages
- Tour of Streetkick, the mobile football game to engage fans and locals with an anti- discrimination message
- Respect Diversity theme at the semi-finals featuring a strong message to celebrate diversity
- A roster of ambassadors for the Respect Diversity - Football Unites campaign including international footballer Clarence Seedorf and Italian referee Pierluigi Collina
Rafal Pankowski, of the Warsaw-based 'Never Again' Association and co-ordinator of the FARE programme for Euro 2012, said today,
'This is the first major football event to be held in Eastern Europe in the modern era and it is one that we have been anticipating for a long time.
'We have well documented issues with discrimination in football but I am also confident of the strong messages that will be sent out, and the contingencies we have to deal with problems. There is also no doubt that the majority of the people of our countries will do their best to welcome visitors regardless of their background or nationality.
'Our biggest achievement has been to start a dialogue and to raise difficult issues, a process that will contribute to the social development of both our countries. We have a close working relationship with UEFA and are proud to be implementing partners of the Respect Diversity - Football Unites campaign.'
Full details of the FARE programme is available on the newly launched www.FootballUnites.net website. Daily information on developments will be available through the FARE Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Editor's Mail

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
