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.
