GENEVA, October 12. /TASS/. The International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) has sent its Good Practice Guide on Diversity and Anti-Discrimination Guide to all 209 national football federations, the FIFA press service said on Monday.
The world’s ruling football body said the new guide "encourages the actors in the world of football to take part of anti-discrimination initiatives in the most proper and effective way."
"After having agreed on the resolution on the fight against racism and discrimination during the FIFA Congress 2013, the Member Associations have now time until 31 March 2016 to present their concrete action plans, and the Good Practice Guide will be an important tool to help them fulfill their duties," FIFA said in a statement.
"The important thing is that these initiatives make best use of the interests and expertise already available in each place", FIFA’s Head of Sustainability Federico Addiechi said. "It’s a useful reminder for the Member Associations to confirm the intention to fight racism and discrimination among players, officials and fans."
