Home Discrimination


Recent reports show that discrimination in sports seems to increase rather than drop. Both passive and active sport enthusiastics report more cases of discrimination every year. FERW is astonished that racial differences, sexual orientation and religion can still be marked as an issue to some people in these days of globalisation, tolerance and diversity. We’re destined to ban out any incident of discrimination in sports and anywhere else.
