Journey to the Mondiali Antirazzisti

As a warm up to the Mondiali Antirazzisti 2018 and the FIFA World Cup, United Glasgow Football Club and Show Racism the Red Card are joining forces to run two events this June.

On Friday 22nd June, we'll host the first primary school Glasgow Anti-Racism World Cup at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow. 3 local schools have been invited to participate, bringing pupils to take part in a tournament and educational workshops around anti-racism and busting the myths around immigration, delivered by Show Racism the Red Card Scotland.

The tournament encourages mixed teams (both meaning mixed genders and players from different schools playing together) and be played in a non-competitive spirit with the focus being on bringing people together and learning about anti-racism instead of winning at all costs.

The volunteers who help to run this from United Glasgow Football Club – a mixture of Scottish and migrant/refugee/asylum seekers – will attend the Mondiali Antirazzisti 2018 and will, therefore, be able to share the learning from this tournament and educational workshops with other groups in the ECCAR network.

This event is supported by the European Coalition of Cities Against Racism (ECCAR), Glasgow Life and the Scottish Refugee Council. 

The following day, Saturday 23rd June, at The Foundation (iTouches), United Glasgow Football Club will run an event for over 16s with a 5-a-side tournament and 7-a-side tournament played in the same spirit as the Mondiali Antirazzisti, bringing together players from existing teams, integration networks, charities and other groups to play football for social inclusion, not to win at all costs! The tournament will be free to enter and serve as a good warm up for the Mondiali Antirazzisti 2018!

Check our social media pages for details of both events and pictures and videos once the events take place!
