Ligue 1 leaders Marseille have unveiled a special kit featuring a colorful version of their sponsor logo, to be worn in the match against Toulouse this weekend to support the fight against racism.
This is part of the campaign run by the FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) network. ‘Football People – Fiers de nos différences’ (Football People – Proud of our differences) promotes saying yes to diversity.
FARE has been working with UEFA since 2001 in a bid to eradicate all forms of racism, intolerance and discrimination from the game. This season the campaign runs from 9th – 23rd October.
For their league match against Toulouse on 18th October, Marseille will wear a special kit with a colourful version of their sponsor logo, Intersport. The color and design of the unique logo mimics one of the images used by FARE.
All players in Ligue 1 and 2 will be invited to wear colored laces this weekend to support the campaign, in a similar movement to the Rainbow Laces campaign that takes place each year in the Premier League.
