UEFA Football

Combating racism and violence remain primary objectives for UEFA and a good number of its member associations. The Turkish Football Association is working with the country’s police authorities with a view to implementing a zero-tolerance approach to violence and public disorder in stadiums. In San Marino, racism was the target of a campaign that took various forms, including banners, stadium announcements and the distribution of T-shirts. The Republic of Ireland likewise aims to combat the spread of racism and promote integration through an intercultural football project, the four focal points of which are: to combat racism in football, to encourage participation in ethnic and cultural minority communities, to develop a dynamic and competitive football culture and to contribute to a wider integration process.
