Reds back Premier League's anti-racism campaign
As part of Manchester United’s continued commitment to equality under its #allredallequal campaign, the club is supporting the Premier League’s ‘No Room for Racism’ campaign, using the power and popularity of football to challenge racism and discrimination within the game.
At the end of last season, and as part of its own #allredallequal campaign, Manchester United launched the HATRED initiative, which saw players from the first team and Manchester United Women come together to challenge some of the issues of discrimination that exist within football.
In the build-up to Sunday’s game against Liverpool, there will be a number of dedicated campaign materials in place across the club’s social channels and at the stadium ahead of kick-off, demonstrating the club’s commitment to ensuring that football provides a safe and welcoming environment to individuals from all backgrounds.
“Our #allredallequal campaign and the work we’re doing in this area is something that we are all immensely proud of, and demonstrates Manchester United’s long-standing commitment to the club’s values around inclusion and opposing discrimination in any form.
“We are fortunate to have staff and supporters from diverse backgrounds, and embrace the responsibility we all have to ensure that Old Trafford is a home for all Reds.”
Premier League Interim Chief Executive Richard Masters said:“Premier League football brings together fans and players from all backgrounds for matches which are watched around the world.
“We are open to everyone and welcome all the supporters who bring passion, emotion and rivalry to create a positive matchday atmosphere, but we want to make it clear – there is no room for racism.”
