    President Webb speaks about racism with Bryant Gumbel

     

    MIAMI -- CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb, who is Chairman of FIFA¹s Anti-Racism and Discrimination Task Force, appeared Tuesday on the acclaimed HBO program Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, addressing FIFA's strategy and efforts to eradicate racism from football.  He discussed the governing body's responsibility in providing meaningful support for all players around the globe and implementing tougher sanctions to fortify the sport, so that focus can be placed on the game itself. 

    The Emmy-winning show also featured an interview with United States international striker Jozy Altidore, a member of FIFA's anti-discrimination body.

    HBO will re-air the episode on May 23 (12:15 p.m., 4:30 p.m.), May 24 (9:45 a.m., 1:45 a.m.), May 27 (8:15 a.m., 6:00 p.m.), May 29 (3:45 p.m., 8:00 p.m.), June 1 (7:30 a.m.) and June 5 (1:30 a.m.). 

    It will also be broadcasted on HBO2 on May 22 (11:15 p.m.), May 25 (11:45 a.m., 2:00 a.m.), May 28 (9:30 p.m.), June 4 (7:00 p.m.), June 12 (11:05 a.m.), June 16 (1:40 p.m.) and 21 (5:10 p.m.).  

    Additionally, it can be seen through HBO On Demand®: May 21-June 16. 

    During the 63rd FIFA Congress last year in Mauritius, Member Associations approved the Anti-Racism and Discrimination resolutions proposed by the task force chaired by President Webb.  The application of these resolutions in every country where football is played will bring universality to the mechanisms that combat racism and discrimination.
