The FIFA Task Force Against Racism and Discrimination will meet on Thursday 12 September, at the Home of FIFA in Zurich. The creation of the Task Force was announced by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter in early March, following a meeting of the FIFA Strategic Committee, as part of a series of measures to tackle the pressing issue of racism and discrimination in football.
Chaired by FIFA Vice-President and CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb, the Task Force includes representatives from the different stakeholders of the football community as well as a broad panel of experts in the fight against racism and discrimination.
The first meeting of the Task Force was held on 6 May, at the Home of FIFA in Zurich. A landmark step was achieved on 31 May when the 63rd FIFA Congress overwhelming approved the FIFA resolution on the fight against racism and discrimination following an address from Webb.
