FARE Event Grants
The FARE – Football Against Racism in Europe-network co-ordinates action against racism in and around football stadiums across Europe.
The aim of the Events Grants is to support organisations to run national and international events addressing discrimination and drive forward debates about social inclusion in football during the #Football People weeks to take place between 8-22 October 2020.
The event grants support the organisation of conferences, panel discussions, roundtable events, festivals etc, that will become the highlights of the campaign.
On top of the financial support, Fare can help applicants develop the programme, find international speakers and generate publicity for their event.
Outstanding events or gatherings that address and discuss topics in relation to football and discrimination and/or social inclusion that are relevant in a national context.
There is no prescribed format for the event but proposals must clearly demonstrate that they have a national or international scope in terms of content, the speakers/participants they involve and their foreseen PR activities.
Applicants are encouraged to work in cooperation with a wide range of partners to increase the impact and visibility of their event and to raise additional funds to reach a wider audience.
Proposed events should address at least one of these objectives:
– Make football more inclusive by tackling exclusion and discrimination;
– Increase representation of minorities and women in football;
– Explore and discuss football as a tool for social change, empowerment, education or social inclusion;
– Educate about and breakdown stereotypes in football.
The events must take place between 8- 22 October 2020.
The event grants cannot be used to fund existing events, stand-alone tournaments, one-off awareness-raising activities in stadiums such as team banners, flags etc. and small-scale local or regional interventions.
For local activities please apply for a small grant.
Who can apply
