10 Mar Yaya Supports Football Black List!
Yaya Toure has given his backing to the Football Black List Celebration, supported by the Premier League, in an interview on his YouTube channel.
The Football Black List is the largest celebration of African and Caribbean communities in the British game. The initiative pays tribute to members of the black community working across the sport – from the boardroom to the boot room. This month a celebration will take place to recognise those on the list – including Yaya.
The Ivorian has a proud record of supporting anti-racism and equality initiatives – as a FARE (Football Against Racism in Europe) Action Weeks ambassador and a consultant on the FIFA anti-racism taskforce, before it was disbanded in 2016.
