FARE Action Weeks - Nelson Mandela Poster 2013

Many football fans all across the continent are standing up against racism, discrimination and for equality in and around their stadia. The annual “Football People” action weeks organised by our partners from FARE from 15-29 October 2013 are a great time to show this unity amongst us as supporters across Europe against discrimination, in addition to our everyday activities in the area. 

Along with activities organised by clubs and leagues or associations, the period gives fans, minority groups and grassroots football clubs space to jointly celebrate the inclusive power of football.

The activities have become the largest series of activities in sport. In 2012, over 500 activities took place in 44 countries with some of Europe's top stars lending support to the campaign.

Everyone interested in football can join the FARE Action Weeks with various activities. Use your creativity and develop news ideas and activities to promote tolerance and get rid of racism and discrimination in football.  You could organise a fan choreography inside your stadium, organise a football camp, develop and run a graffiti workshop inside a stadium, work with minority groups in an area on a joint project. 

For grassroots organisations and fan groups’, financial support of up to €400 can be offered but it is not necessary to apply for a grant to get involved. From August 1st grant applications are available via

The deadline for applications is 9 September 2013.

On the 3 September and 3 October FARE staff will be available to chat live through in order to help you develop your ideas.

Everyone is invited to be involved to stand up to discrimination and celebrate diversity through football and to use the Football People Logo on all materials.  

Material to download is available on Don’t forget that there is no requirement to apply for a grant to take a stand and participate in the FARE Action Weeks.


The 2013 Action Weeks will be from 15 to 29 October and the application process for grants will run from 1st August to 9th September.
