Show Racism The Red Card

Partick Thistle Football Club are proudly continuing their support for the education charity, Show Racism the Red Card throughout the upcoming Fortnight of Action. Our club have supported the charity’s messages of tolerance and inclusion within football for many years. Now more than ever, the importance of this fortnight cannot be overstated.

All professional clubs in Scotland will show their support over the upcoming Fortnight of Action beginning this weekend. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racial discrimination and inequality throughout society.

Show Racism the Red Card work all year round with schools, workplaces, grassroots and youth football clubs and the prison service to educate young people and adults on challenging prejudice and stereotypes, using the power of football as a positive way to instigate conversation on anti-racism.

Covid-19 and events overseas have shone a light on the growing inequalities that some of us unfairly face. Still today, many experience this disproportionately due to the colour of their skin.

We call on our supporters to continue to challenge racism. It is the responsibility of us all to ensure that the anti-racism message is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action.

Ross Docherty, Partick Thistle Football Club’s Show Racism the Red Card Fortnight of Action Ambassador said:

“Football is a unique and very powerful thing that can bring people from different backgrounds, cultures, religions and nationalities together. There is no place for discrimination of any kind in the game that we all love. Together we can put an end to racism in football once and for all.”

Partick Thistle Football Club stands with everyone who has had to endure racial prejudice in all areas of their lives. We condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated at our club.

Football is a sport that is loved by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever your background. Education is the key and Partick Thistle Football Club will support Show Racism the Red Card to ensure our future generation are equipped with the tools to challenge and eradicate racism from football and society.
