Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary, said:

"It is heart-breaking to see the rise of racism across the UK and nowhere is this more apparent than on the football terraces.

“The work of Show Racism the Red Card has never been more important in using education in schools and the sport of football to address head on how vile, destructive and needless racism is.

“We are one race.  The human race."
