world in condemning the various acts of Xenophobia in South Africa and the
rest of the continent.
Under the banner of the Football Africa Arena, a WhatsApp Group comprising

We hereby welcome all stakeholders including footballers, administrators and
fans to join us in our hashtag #FootballAgainstXenophobia and be part of
influencing positive change, and encourage peaceful coexistence between
communities and nationalities through Football.
