Especially in an emotional sport like football, moods can change quickly and hate and hatred can arise – whether in person or digitally. We are clearly against this, which is why we are participating again in the Fair Play Weeks this year. In 2023, as in the previous year, these objects will be allocated for this purpose To combat extremism in sports and for a diverse and open society, Where there is no room for hatred and excitement. So Sunday’s home match day against SK Austria Klagenfurt is all about fair play. Not only will a video specially produced by us be shown on the video wall of the stadium, but players from the SK Rapid Special Needs team will also take to the field with an important message. Today’s home match between Rapid II and SC Neusiedl am See will be an example in this regard. By the way, you can watch the video at the end of this article.
Everyone is different – but they have the same rights. People differ – in their appearance or gender, in their religion or (social) background, in their physical abilities, in who they love or where they were born. Misanthropic ideas are directed against devalued individuals and groups. Sport in particular has the power to create a space for commonalities, bring people together and highlight their diversity.
Activities in Austria “Fair Play – An Initiative for Diversity and Anti-Discrimination” In cooperation with ÖFB And the Austrian Football League In coordination with the city of Vienna and the Ministry of Sports, it supports the campaign. More information is available here.
