Libero Sports taking stand against racial discrimination

Libero Sports represents more than 150 professional football players globally, stands in unity and solidarity in the campaign against racism and racial discrimination faced by the North-East Indians across India, particularly in the Indian capital of Delhi.

The North-East has provided some great players to Indian football and Libero Sports is associated with nine footballers from the region. They are – Thoi Singh (Manipur), Siam Hangal (Manipur), Malem Meitei (Manipur), Rozama Fanai (Mizoram), Uttam Rai (Sikkim), Randhan Meitei (Manipur), Milan Singh (Manipur), Vinit Chamling (Assam) and Sanjeev Singh (Manipur). Libero Sports is very proud of the service that the North-Eastern states have provided to the development of football in the country.

The Libero Sports team stands united against any form of racial or regional discrimination and urges the Indian football fraternity to do the same.

Libero Sports is releasing an e-banner to communicate its solidarity on the issue of racial discrimination and wants all the well-wishers of the beautiful game to share and spread a strong message.

On this occasion, Sukhvinder Singh, MD – Libero Sports India, said, “All the players that we represent including the 9 players from north east are not only our clients but our friends and brothers. We condemn any sentiment that motivates division of the unity of the country on the basis of race, caste or gender. I personally am a big fan of the players from the North-East India and have always admired legends like Bhaichung Bhutia and Renedy Singh. The Indian football industry is indebted to the service provided by the North-Eastern football fraternity and shall always look up to this region for the footballing prowess that it has.”
