Footballers, managers and presenters from the Premier League made this appeal that reminds fans to stand against racism on Holocaust Memorial Day.
The international day is a reminder of the awful events that took place during the holocaust, which resulted in the death of 6 million Jews. The FA and other football bodies have done similar campaigns against racism, but this appeal uses that dark period in history to remind us of what can happen as a result of racist attitudes.
The appeal features well-known players like Harry Kane, Jesse Lingard and Virgil Van Dijk, as well as managers like Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard. Football can be a great way to bring people together and many club fanbases are a diverse mix of different backgrounds, races and nationalities. But the video also touches on recent events at football games where players have been subjected to racist chanting and xenophobic gestures. It warns us of what actions like this can lead to but ends by telling us that by standing up to racism together, we can make it a thing of the past.
