Calls for racism fines to pay for anti-racism campaigning

Managers, players and ex-pros back call for racism fines to pay for anti-racism campaigning.

Names from across English football have endorsed calls from Show Racism The Red Card (SRtRC) for FA fines in racist cases to be given to anti-racism campaigns.

SRtRC has called for all fines in cases of racist abuse, for example the recent cases of John Terry and Luis Suarez, to be split 50-50 between its campaign and Kick It Out.**

**

This is a great idea - football is a very powerful vehicle for combating racism. It's the duty of everyone in the football family to help support the fight against racism in the game and society at large. The FA should definitely make this happen."

– Chris Powell, Charlton Manager

Those who have already backed the call include former-England manager Graham Taylor, Robbie Keane, former-England defender Sol Campbell, former-Sunderland player Kevin Ball, former-England and Liverpool legend John Barnes, former-Newcastle forward David Kelly and former-full back John Beresford.
