Coptic Solidarity submitted a report & has dialogued with FIFA, urging them to investigate Egypt’s discrimination against #CopticAthletes. There is not a single Copt on the Egyptian national or reserve team. FIFA has failed to uphold their own statue banning discrimination by allowing Egypt to remain a member organization.
Of the 540 players in the top-flight soccer clubs in Egypt, only three are Coptic. Please send a message to FIFA today demanding they end this discrimination!
Discrimination of any kind against a country, private person or group of
people on account of race, skin colour, ethnic, national or social origin,
gender, disability, language, religion, political opinion or any other
opinion, wealth, birth or any other status, sexual orientation or any other
reason is strictly prohibited and punishable by suspension or expulsion. ~ FIFA Statues, Article 4.1
The Egyptian Football Association is a member association of FIFA. Without accountability, FIFA will not implement its statute and code of ethics which prohibit discrimination against footballers within their member associations. Therefore, FIFA should be investigating why Copts have been prevented from playing football at top levels in Egypt. By sending a message to FIFA and asking them to conduct an independent investigation, you can help end discrimination against Coptic footballers. Please take action today!
