Tonight Canvas will show the first episode of the three-part documentary FC United, about racism and the lack of diversity in Belgian football.
In FC United you will see personal testimonials from professional and amateur footballers that show how serious the problem is, in both men’s and women’s football.
In addition, FC United will enter into a dialogue with current policymakers, in search of opportunities to sideline racism and structural inequality together with the new generation of football players.
Among others, Romelu Lukaku, Vadis Odjidja, Faris Haroun, Cyriel Dessers and national coach Roberto Martinez will be speaking in FC United.
FC United: from Monday 3 May at 9.20 pm. on Canvas and VRT NOW
