Ã¯Â»Â¿Is Enough Being Done To Prevent Racism in Football?
racism hatred or intolerance of a nonher move or other races is unfortunately a very frequent situation around the world. Starting very early on, the belief that someones race is superior and has the rectify to rule others still takes point veritable(a) to this day. footb every(prenominal) game, is a sport which should bring countries and races together to compete against each other. only this is not the case, the degree of Racism in football is merely unacceptable. From alliance 2 in England, to the FIFA World Cup it takes place on the pitch, in the stands and even on the internet.Many various organisations have attempted to prevent Racism in Football, including Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) & Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). But are they doing enough? The most recent incident was on the 24th July 2013 where AC Milan left back Kevin constant quantity kicked the ball into the herd and left the pitch after racist abuse was universe cantillate from the stands of the Sassuolo con lovelyers while he was preparing to take a throw in. Constants actions emulate those of Boatengs where a similar scene occurred however the whole team walked finish the pitch instead of the one speller.While Boateng had plenty of support, it seemed that AC were a great deal slight supportive of Constants decision to exit the pitch. The company s tutelage in a statement This was not a decision he should have interpreted upon himself to make. After the situation had been reviewed by the FIGC (Italian Football Federation) Sassoulo were fined 30,000 euros for their fans actions, I fully support the decision to punish the club but arent others to blame for Constants decision to leave the pitch? Is this really going to lay off the Racist remarks? The answer is absolutely not.FIGCs solution did not at present affect the fans and therefore these scenes will undoubtedly keep occurring. Situations like this should be dealt with in the equitable way to abrogate Racism in football and not just result in a careless fine. yet this isnt the worst part of the story. Constant was fined with 3,000 euros for is actions. This is an absolutely appalling decision, and could by chance encourage supporters to carry on with racist remarks towards the players. Kevin Constant had every right to exit the pitch in the manor he did.On the other hand, FIFA -a dour with its employees and the football community- have showed that theyre currently unquestionably attempting to stop Racism in football and inside civilisation in general. FIFA has begun and presented events such as the FIFA host on Racism in Football, UN Anti-Racism Conference, and established its very first Anti-Discrimination twenty-four hour period on 7 July 2002. But this isnt enough, FIFA have thought of legion(predicate) methods, but havent executed enough hands on tasks to cause any great effect. For example, the FIFA Disciplinary code was interpreted into place a few years ago.The code shows what happens if the FIFA Statues -basic laws for world football- are violated. It applies to everyone have-to doe with in the football match universe played but is everyone being caught out? Not everyone can be dealt with at one time, in particular when quintuple people join in Racist chants. Therefore I dont see the Disciplinary Code as being an effective method to eliminate Racism from Football. UEFA make for very close with FARE (Football Against Racism In Europe) and give them a lot of aid in promotion, finance etc.I in person feel that have a much more effective method of preventing Racism. I feel this way because p.a. at 40 UEFA club competition matches, players are accompanied onto the arena by children strikeing Unite Against Racism T-shirts, while team captains wear matching armbands. I support this form of preventing racism because fans respect their clubs players and if they see the players supporting the fight against racism then they cogency think twice about shouting abuse at a player with a different colour of skin. This method is also improbably cheap and extremely effective.Considering the millions of pounds some of these respected organisations will have, purchasing t-shirts and armbands should not affect them financially in any way. There are multiple Racist incidents in Football and Kevin Constants wasnt the worst. timeworn Liege player Onyewu, stated that Anderlechts Jelle Van Damme called him a flyblown ape under his breath during the first leg of a play off match. Onyewu alerted the white referee but no action was taken and he was ignored. Although this isnt the worst of what happened on that match day.When Onyewu arrived at the orbit he was punched and shouted at by the opposition fans. These fans were unpunished and allowed to bring in the stadium with nothing said. This is just one of many racist incidents in football which havent been dealt with correctly, the referee blatantly showed he was simply uninterested in Onyewus complaint. I believe that the referee should acquire a long match ban and fine for his actions as he should have been one of the first to report the incident. As for the fans who physically attacked Onyewu, they deserved a permanent ban from going to any future matches.I personally feel that FIFA, FIGC, UEFA and all other major Football related organisations should work together to fight racism and not just focus on their own ways of preventing it. Every match should be promoting the act against racism, tickets, programmes and all forms of merchandise should have Say No To Racism printed on them. what is more the punishments for violating the FIFA Disciplinary code should be stricter, fans should have a very long or possibly life- ban from going to matches if caught and players, managers, match officials should be set in the same manor along with a minimum fine of 40,000 pounds.
