The campaign to eliminate racism and discrimination from football will be given a high-profile platform at UEFA EURO 2012 in Poland and Ukraine this summer thanks to UEFA's Respect Diversity programme of activities.
The Respect Diversity programme will be implemented with the cooperation of UEFA's long-time anti-discrimination partner the FARE network and its eastern European partner organisation Never Again. It will spread the positive message of diversity through various undertakings both before and during the tournament.
One key aspect of the initiative will be the monitoring by Never Again of racist and discriminatory chanting and symbols. Such monitoring activities have been an important aspect of FARE's work at major international final rounds for several years.
