Roma Community Centre joins the Football People weeks

Roma Community Cenre is joining thousands of European groups this month to use the power of football to present a unified stand against discrimination and declare themselves Football People.

The Fare action weeks bring together groups of all sizes in over 40 countries to counter discrimination and celebrate diversity through the game.

Roma Community Centre and Fare believe that football, as the world’s most popular sport, belongs to us all and transcends all barriers, making us all Football People.

Between 09 and 23 October, grassroots and professional football, including national teams playing the 2016 UEFA Euro qualifiers, were involved in the campaign reaching fans around the world.

On 22nd of October Roma Community Centre organises Football tournament  in Vilnius Football School.

“The action weeks are a very inspiring time, in which discrimination and exclusion are addressed by the power of grassroots action. We expect over 2000 activities, with the Football People movement growing and being able to count on the work of many sport organisations to broaden the action” said Fare Executive Director Piara Powar.

Dmitrij Kartashov from Vilnius Football School said: “Football doesn’t know nationalities, races, minorities, all are equal being different. We are glad to welcome the teams from Roma Community Centre and hope that we will meet in future.”

Roma Communty Centre encourages everybody to get involved in the in the largest series of anti-discrimination activities in Europe and help bring about a change. This time we do it through and in football this October.
