Based on the report “Color- What Colour?” published by UNESCO in 2015 in partnership with Juventus FC, PRISA Radio and the Santillana Foundation launch a campaign, entitled Sin respeto no hay juego (No respect no game) in Madrid, Spain, on 24 January 2017, with the objective to fight discrimination and racism in football in Spain and Latin America.

The report “Color- What Colour?” demonstrates that racist incidents continue to jeopardize competitions and are a threat to the reputation of football clubs. This campaign seeks to promote the values of respect, diversity and tolerance in order to fight against racism, discrimination, xenophobia and intolerance in football.

The launching event will gather Nada Al-Nashif, UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Social and Human Sciences, and Andrea Agnelli, President of Juventus FC, Florentino Pérez, President of Real Madrid CF, and Josep Mª Bartomeu, President of FC Barcelona.

A round-table with prominent players and coaches will also be organized to discuss the different means to promote sport values.
