Brentford FC backed the sixth annual Wear Red Day yesterday. Show Racism the Red Card, the UK’s largest anti-racism educational charity, holds a Wear Red Day every October to which encourages schools, businesses and individuals to wear red and donate £1 to help fund anti-racism education for young people and adults across the UK. Brentford FC took part yesterday. More on Show Racism the Red Card can be seen here.
This follows a statement from the Club earlier this summer further outlining our position on Bee Together. That can be seen here. The Club has also released an updated video reiterating our stand against racism and discrimination. Under the #BeeTogether banner, the video features Brentford players, fans and staff, and stresses the importance the Club places on togetherness and unity. See it here.
Not Today or Any Day is the EFL’s anti-discrimination message. Launched in October 2019, the ‘Not Today or Any Day’ campaign aims to encourage behavioural and attitude changes at all levels of EFL football and ensure that a zero-tolerance approach to discrimination is embedded throughout clubs, particularly at Brentford. Brentford players wear shirts with the logo on them as a further mark of the Club’s commitment to racial equality.
