fairplay Aktionswochen 2021 - That was nice and now it's over!
With campaigns at the Bundesliga clubs SKN St. Pölten Frauen, FC Südburgenland, SK Rapid Wien, SK Sturm Graz, FC Juniors OÖ, SCR Altach, the Young Violets, as well as at the amateur sports clubs ASK Erlaa, Union Katsdorf, ASKÖ Lending, Union Julbach, ASV Kfz Erdbau Moser and FC Leonhofen, eventful weeks came to an end with the weekend of October 30/31, and at ATSV Fischamend with November 5.
90 and a high number of unreported cases
It is 92 lines long, our Excel list for the Action Weeks 2021, minus the headlines there are 86 clubs and initiatives known to us and directly provided with material by us, where the topic "Solidarity - Football Without Exclusion" was brought to the public in 90 different actions. The number of unreported cases, however, is high: many soccer clubs have downloaded campaign material from our website without our knowledge - but with our full consent! - campaign material from our website and displayed it on their websites, via social media or during a match. Some of them we have found out about, others remain unknown.
You can find the highlights on our social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! Especially our hashtag #fairplayaktionswochen gives you a good insight into what was going
So it's time to say THANK YOU - for the fact that more clubs than ever before took part in the fairplay action weeks for diversity in soccer. For the fact that we received so many photos and videos, from prominent national team players as well as from Bundesliga teams and grassroots sports clubs. For the fact that the cooperation with the Austrian Bundesliga and the ÖFB again worked so smoothly. For the fact that the fairplay team is still burning for anti-discrimination in the 22nd action weeks and can reach more and more clubs in Austria. For the fact that the City of Vienna has again supported us financially within the framework of Bewegung findet Stadt. For the fact that we are always warmly welcomed on the various Viennese soccer fields, where we could visit matches and actions. For the fact that some clubs want to work with us on the topics of diversity, homophobia or racism even beyond the action weeks. For the fact that Corona only caught up with us again after the action weeks. For the fact that Austrian soccer stands up so strongly against exclusion.
And THANK YOU also to the team of the fairplay initiative, which, as every year, has invested many hours in the implementation of the action weeks!
The fairplay action weeks
The fairplay action weeks took place from October 7-31, 2021. Under the motto "SOLIDARITY - Football without Exclusion", clubs were invited to set an example for social justice.
The activities are coordinated by the fairplay Initiative for Diversity and Anti-Discrimination. The ÖFB and the Austrian Football League support the campaign, which is made possible by the City of Vienna - Bewegung findet Stadt, the Austrian Ministry of Sport and the European Commission (Erasmus+). Across Europe, the action weeks are coordinated by the European FARE network.
