Last year, on the weekend of October the 15th, fans from around the country joined together to support the Playfair Qatar Weekend of Action. In Newcastle, Cardiff, Bournemouth, Manchester, Liverpool, London and many more, fans and fan groups staged photo protests before their game, telling FIFA and Qatar it was time to play by the rules.
We’ve left the confirmed events list below as a record. Most of the photos are now in our fan gallery and on our Instagram (@playfairqatar). Thanks very much indeed to everyone who joined in.
Confirmed events (2016)
In partnership with fan groups, we’ll be holding some key meet ups around the country. If they’re not for teams you support and you want to take part, we can support you taking action yourself: just get in touch.
All the actions are either formally supported or promoted by appropriate supporters’ groups (all dates Saturday 15th unless marked). Check if there’s something happening at your own club and RSVP now.
