United continue support of 'No Room for Racism' campaign
This weekend, Manchester United and the Premier League will be working together to promote the national ‘No Room for Racism’ campaign and urge fans to challenge and report discriminatory behaviour wherever they see it.
We are committed to the fight against racism and discrimination through our ‘All Red All Equal’ platform, and by supporting this league-wide campaign, which forms part of a series of initiatives that the Premier League are implementing to address racism in society.
The No Room for Racism message will be visible at Sunday’s game on signage, television coverage and on social media.
"We will do all we can to ensure action is taken, making it clear there is no place for racial prejudice in football and wider society.”
Earlier this week, United’s Paul Pogba also spoke to Sky Sports about the racist abuse his parents endured.
He said: “My dad, when he arrived in France, he had some times when he told me he got attacked and people said some racist stuff to him when he was on the bus, and stuff like this. You have to take it and he was always calm.
“You know who you are, you have to be proud of who you are, always. Proud of your colour, proud of who you are, always.”
Pogba: My dad taught me about racism
In an interview with Sky Sports, to celebrate Black History Month, Paul explains how his dad taught him to handle racism...
In April, United launched SEE RED, a campaign which aims to confront the scourge of racism and discrimination.
The campaign encourages fans to take responsibility for reporting incidents of racism or other hate crimes, to speak out and to stand up for those who may be on the receiving end of discriminatory abuse.
For any incidents inside the stadium, fans should report it immediately to the nearest steward. Meanwhile the club’s reporting tool, manutd.com/seered, can be used to report any instances of discrimination online.
As well as this, out in the community, a series of anti-racism workshops and training sessions have also been delivered at Foundation partner schools and for club and Foundation staff members. Most recently, a referee workshop was delivered by Manchester FA at Levenshulme High School for Girls.
Funding for the courses was raised by Manchester United fans, through sales of Black Lives Matter-branded home shirts last season. An incredible £14,277 was raised, which was donated to Kick It Out before being allocated back to the Foundation’s inclusion programmes.
