The fairplay initiative publicly opposes discrimination, raises awareness and campaigns, and supports, advises and networks proactive groups and clubs that want to take action against exclusion in the stadium and on the sports fields.
In addition to combating overt forms of discrimination in sport, it also aims to highlight the exclusion of women, minorities, migrants and other marginalized groups at various levels of sport and to implement measures for inclusion and support their self-empowerment and self-organization. Both on the level of discrimination and on the level of representation, the problem of sexism and homophobia in sports is an increasingly central area of fairplay's work.
On the one hand, the fairplay service office sees itself as a professional platform that promotes initiatives and projects, drives mobilization and offers support. On the other hand, it is also an important hub for national and international networking, mediation activities and participatory and emancipatory initiatives.
Therefore, fairplay is constantly devteam members to develop new project ideas or to adapt successfully implemented projects, which are supported and co-financed by various funding bodies. In this section of our homepage you can find information about current or recently completed projects.
For example, fairplay-VIDC is currently the lead organization in two projects funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ Sport Program (ESPIN and Queering Football), is leading the ADA co-funded project Nosso Jogo, is conducting a Studie zu Homophobie in Austrian sport and published a portrait campaign on women's football clubs in Vienna.
