At 14:30 local time on 11 July, Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium will play host to a panel discussion on diversity and anti-discrimination. Participants include Federico Addiechi, FIFA’s Head of Sustainability and Diversity, Alexey Smertin, Football Union of Russia’s anti-discrimination officer and FIFA World Cup™ ambassador, Piara Powar, Executive Director of the FARE Network, and FIFA legend Geremi Njitap.
In recent years, FIFA has introduced specific measures aimed at fighting all forms of discrimination and promoting diversity in football. For the first time in the history of the World Cup, a dedicated anti-discrimination monitoring system has been put in place. FIFA will analyse these measures and the results achieved so far during the panel discussion.
