September 6, 2022
On Colour Blind Awareness Day (6th September 2021), TACBIS project partners European Football for Development Network (EFDN), Colour Blind Awareness, the National Football Associations of Portugal, Iceland, Romania and Wales, as well as Oxford Brookes University and many football clubs raised awareness for Colour Blindness and the implications it has on the beautiful game. Furthermore, many EFDN members and other football and sport organisations joined the awareness-raising campaign.
The TACBIS project consortium has organised a unique toolkit for organisations to show their support towards the Colour Blind Awareness Day 2022. The aim of this campaign is to highlight the importance of colour blindness from the viewpoint of sport participants, for whom participating in many sporting activities can be a challenge. The challenges range from same colour team kits to the concealment of training equipment. Ultimately, TACBIS’ intention is to bring colour blindness to the attention of the participants, families, as well as club and foundation staff members.
