Under the authority of the Minister of Sports (in French-speaking part of BEL), and in collaboration with the media RTBF Sport, Panathlon Wallonie-Bruxelles and Stop Racism In Sport, are proposing a series of concrete actions that will allow the positive messages of openness, understanding and tolerance to be relayed further and further away.

The specific actions of the campaign “No Racism in Sport”:

•           A giant banner as a tool for sports life

•           Video capsules broadcast by RTBF sport: the field speaks

•           Call to the clubs of supporters to realize a tifo against racism.

The campaign, launched in 2022, continues in this year 2023.

Since February 17, 2022, a monumental work of art called "Fair-Play" has adorned the public space of Brussels, located a few steps away from the Sports Hall of the Brussels municipality of Ganshoren.

1m80 high and wide, welded on a 1m80 high base, the sculpture "Fair-Play" expresses the support of each individual through his differences. Each hand is different: one stronger, the other more fragile. One more perfect, the other less so.
One more tenacious, the other more flexible in the grip... As perfection does not exist, this work invites us to exchange, to respect the other, to hold hands and to respect a common rule: Fair-Play.
