The campaign against discrimination, not just in and around football, but in European society as a whole, is a key tenet of UEFA's social responsibility programme.

The European governing body believes the power of football can be used to tackle such issues as racism, homophobia, discrimination against ethnic minorities and institutional discrimination such as under-representation of women, or lack of diversity. To this end, UEFA has forged partnerships with the following anti-discrimination organisations:

Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) is UEFA's core strategic partner in this field, having first joined forces in 2001. UEFA has collaborated with FARE on activities to heighten awareness of discrimination including the October FARE Action Weeks which include the prominent platform of UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League matches for the anti-discrimination message.

UEFA also has an associated partnership with the Homeless World Cup, a network of over 70 international partner organisations that use football to improve the lives of homeless people throughout the world.
