Terry to wear anti-racism armband

FOOTBALL By - BBC | October 22nd 2012

Uefa will ask John Terry to wear an anti-racism armband in Chelsea's match against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Uefa, the governing body said: "The captains will be asked to wear a 'Unite Against Racism' branded armband."

The move is part of a week of action by European anti-racism body Football Against Racism in Europe (Fare).

Terry recently accepted the Football Association's four-match ban for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand.

The 31-year-old former England captain is still eligible to play for the club in Europe, however.

Anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out have faced criticism during their planned week with high profile players such as Rio Ferdinand and Jason Roberts, and more than 30 other players from more than eight clubs, refusing to wear the organisation's T-shirts during the weekend in a protest against what they claim is a lack of progress.

The Kick It Out period of anti-racism action ends on 29 October.

An independent FA panel found Terry guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during a game at Loftus Road. Terry received a £220,000 fine as well as the four-match ban.

The Fare campaign will be promoted at 40 matches across the Champions League and Europa League between the 16 -31 October.
