TACKLE – Tackling Racism in Grassroots Football

TACKLE – Tackling Racism in Grassroots Football

TACKLE is a project implemented by a consortium of highly experienced organisations and institutions that wishes to raise awareness about racism in grassroots football and contribute to addressing such incidents and their effects on players, teams, and all people involved. The project will develop and make available a set of innovative resources and tools to educate, train and empower professionals working in football (coaches, trainers and managers) and stakeholders in the field so that they are in a position to identify, prevent and mitigate racism, xenophobia and other forms of intolerance.

Key objectives:

  • Enhance the awareness and competences of football coaches and managers in grassroots football to proactively manage and prevent racism, xenophobia, and other forms of intolerance
  • Contribute to the prevention & mitigation of racism and xenophobia incidents in grassroots football
  • Enhance awareness of national and transnational football-sports stakeholders as well as the general public about the severe impact of racism on players, grassroots football, and sports in general
