This week's UEFA Champions League matches provide a platform for the Action Week being staged by UEFA's partner, the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network. The Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) Action Week â€' supported by UEFA - is the focus of European football's symbolic stand against racism and discrimination. The Action Week once again features activities by fans, players, clubs, associations, minority organisations, anti-discrimination groups, youth centres, schools and the sports media.
All kinds of activities will take place tonight ahead of PSV's Champions League encounter with Fenerbahçe SK. The 22 children that accompany the players onto the pitch will be wearing t-shirts with an anti-racism slogan while the team captains, Timmy Simons and Alex, will be wearing armbands bearing the slogan 'Unite against Racism'.

A letter with an anti-racism message will be read by the stadium speaker tonight. PSV already organised an anti-racism day at their home match against VVV-Venlo last Saturday. Ahead of the game, a new anti-racism film and a message from captain Timmy Simons were shown on the large screens in the stadium.
