SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD | MONTH OF ACTION
Today we are hosting our Show Racism the Red Card Month of Action fixture. The City players will be wearing Show Racism the Red Card t-shirts during their warmup to promote an anti-racism message and demonstrate our stance against racism in sport and society.
Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. They aim to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.

Love Football. Protect the Game.
The FA, Premier League and EFL are together introducing new measures and stronger sanctions across the game to tackle the increased anti-social and criminal behaviours recently seen within football grounds and underline the importance of a safe matchday environment.
The new set of actions, which will be implemented across all English football leagues from the start of Season 2022/23 and backed by the Football Supporters’ Association, will target activity such as entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyrotechnics and throwing objects - as well as drug use and discriminatory behaviour.
These acts are dangerous, illegal and have severe consequences. They have no place in football, or anywhere.
Any supporters who experience or witness any anti-social behaviour, directly or indirectly, should contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or texting 07554 158224, giving as much detail as possible (including row, seat number and a description of the incident).
Using video evidence and stewarding practices, we will do our utmost to identify anti-social individuals and ensure that they are no longer able to attend Cardiff City fixtures and are reported to the Police. We do not consider them supporters of our Club.

Together Against Discrimination
Football is for everyone. We might support different teams, but football unites and inspires us. It is a game with many opinions. But there is one on which we should all agree.
Racism and discrimination is not welcome in our game. So if you hear it, report it - whether in the street, at Cardiff City Stadium or online.
And when you see players taking the knee ahead of the game as a simple and peaceful act of protest this season, please respect their choice.
Because we are all Together Against Discrimination.
On Saturday 1st October in Malang, Indonesia, 125 football fans tragically lost their lives with many hundreds more injured, following overcrowding at the home of Arema FC.
Nobody should ever go to a football match and not return home.
In difficult times, the football family stands together and as a mark of respect to all those that lost their lives, players & staff from Cardiff City & Blackburn Rovers, along with all other EFL clubs, are wearing black armbands here tonight.
We ask fans of both clubs to unite and remember the victims through a period of silence prior to kick-off this evening.
Tuesday's match kicks off at 8pm!
See you all at CCS, Bluebirds!
