Football is the biggest sport in the world and belongs to us all.

FARE is an international network of groups active in over 40 countries, our aim is to help support and and coordinate efforts across borders and strengthen activity at national level.

We want to see the beautiful game played without discrimination and used as a social tool to unite communities, overcome exclusion and create social change. Our focus is on tackling racism of all kinds, homophobia, and to empower minorities and women to realise their personal and collective potential.
