Ross County FC are proudly supporting Show Racism the Red Card's Fortnight of Action

Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years with the SPFL and its member clubs supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland 15 years ago. 

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 5th- 19th October, shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game. 

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend – Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination. 

We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces. 

"In 2018 Ross County Football Club are delighted to again show our support for Show Racism the Red Card’s Annual Fortnight of Action,” said captain, Marcus Fraser. “We are honoured to play our part in encouraging social inclusion, diversity and tolerance as well as stamping out prejudice and inequality in our society. On behalf of the Club I appeal to you to report and never tolerate racist behaviour wherever it may exist in your community. It is totally unacceptable in any form.

"As Club Captain - and on behalf of all my teammates and coaching staff - I encourage all our supporters to embrace this idea and show racism the red card.”

Ross County FC condemn all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

Show Racism the Red Card are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all. 

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.
