The Trust and Rotherham United Football Club are proud to support the Show Racism The Red Card campaign during Hate Crime Awareness Week & Black History Month 2022.

Show Racism the Red Card’s annual Wear Red Day will be taking place on 21st October 2022.

The Trust and Rotherham United Football Club are proud to support the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity again this year. We invited over 150 students from 8 schools to take part in our anti-discrimination education event at the AESSEAL New York Stadium today.


We are incredibly lucky to work with Seth Ejukwu again as the red card team deliver anti-discrimination workshops, introducing children to hate crime awareness, stereotyping, and identifying racism. All the children got a chance to take part in the discussion and activities, as well as a tour to experience the AESSEAL New York Stadium. We put on these workshops to schools like St Bedes Catholic Primary School, Bramley Sunnyside and Redscope Primary to present and educate anti-racist messages so young people can challenge racism in their community.


After lunch we were joined by Rotherham United’s own Richard Wood & Chiedozie Ogbene to show their support, meet the children and explain their experience on what we should do to challenge racism in the game of football and other sports. Chiedozie gave his advice as both an EFL player and Republic of Ireland International, whilst Richard having played professional football for over 20 years had a few stories to tell and some inspiring words for our guests to think about. The players finished off what was an inspiring and eye-opening day for these children all in support of this important month of Hate Crime Awareness Week and Black History Month.

We want to thank the team at Show Racism The Red Card, Professional Football Association and to Rotherham United Football Club for all of the important work they do to continue supporting this campaign every year. To learn more information, you can visit https://www.theredcard.org/
