UK ALERT UPDATE: Watford FC back down over Israeli FA request
Campaigners succeed in kicking international racism out of football in Watford

Watford Football Club has announced that it has refused the Israeli FA\'s request to allow the Israeli team to play its European Championship matches at Vicarage Road. This follows the concerted campaign by individuals and organisations to protest Watford FC\'s initial acceptance of the request.

IHRC congratulates all campaigners who wrote to, emailed and called Watford FC, Watford Council and carried out an efficient and principled campaign. It is clear that taking a stance against racism can work.

IHRC suggests campaigners call or email Watford FC to express their appreciation at the decision. Their numbers / email are below:
