Fleetwood Town support Show Racism the Red Card on their 25th anniversary ahead of the side’s league fixture against Burton Albion at Highbury.

To raise awareness, Show Racism the Red Card asked people to take part in their #WRD21 campaign, where people wore a red item of clothing.

This is something that could be seen in Fleetwood Town’s home fixture on Tuesday, as players from both teams wore red Show Racism the Red Card t-shirts during the warmup.

Fleetwood Town Community Trust are happy to help raise awareness and education around the historic and existing racial issues in our society. Taking part in the #WRD21 allows the Trust to do this, as well as demonstrate that there is no room for racism in our society.

John Hartley, Community Cohesion & Inclusion Manager, said: “We are committed to tackling discriminative behaviour head-on and showing that there is no room for racism within our community.

“We are supporting the Wear Red Day campaign and encourage local residents across the region to do the same, highlighting one clear message. By working collaboratively, we can all show that we are united through the inclusive values that we as a community stand by.”
