About Show Racism the Red Card

Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism charity, which was established in January 1996. The aim of the organisation is to produce anti-racist educational resources, which harness the high profile of professional footballers to combat racism throughout society.

Their educational materials are very accessible and have been highly successful over many years. Footballers are role models for young people who will listen to them and learn from them. Over the years they have increased the range and quality of their resources, however the central resource remains the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ film, which features professional footballers.

The organisation has built up a pool of professional footballers as patrons and one of the highlights of their work remains the interaction of the players with young people at events at Football Clubs. To find out more or make a donations please visit

About Tamer Hassan

Tamer has been living between LA and London over the last five years. His most recent film ʻThe Doubleʼ with co-stars Richard Gere and Martin Sheen is coming out this year, directed by Michael Brandt. Hassan also starred in the NCIS LA, appearing in a regular role alongside Mark Harmon.

Tamer has now come back to London full time to shoot his new project ʻPlayerʼ which he has written, and will also be starring in for his directorial debut.

To his credit and perhaps detriment at times, Tamer is no self-publicist, but has plenty to shout about having acted alongside many more Hollywood stars such as Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Mads Mikkelsen and Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans) Aaron Johnson and Nicholas Cage (Kickass) Vigo Mortensen (Eastern Promises); Bob Hoskins, Morgan Freeman and Jet Lee (Unleashed), Daniel Craig (Layer Cake) and 50cent (Dead Man Running) as well as taking the lead in TV’s Hannibal of the Alps about the life of the Carthaginian military commander.

Playing to his strengths, Tamer portrays the humorous, loveable rogue well, (The Business, The Football Factory) which will no doubt endear him to a certain type of film fan, but, unlike many of his peers, Tamer introduces good looks and a powerful yet cheeky screen presence to these roles…and it works! Apprenticeship served, itʼs time to take the lead!

Away from the big screen, Tamer is a family man through and through, he also supports charities such as The Damilola Taylor Trust and Beat Bullying and most recently, the Ben Kinsella – Stamp Out Knife Crime.!/search/realtime/%23ShowRacismtheRedCa...
