England agrees on anti-racism plan

LONDON -- The English Football Association has approved proposals to help stamp out the resurgence of racism in the sport.

The "Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan" was requested by British Prime Minister David Cameron after high-profile racism cases involving Chelsea captain John Terry and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez last season and various fan incidents.

Among 15 pages of proposals, managers and players will have "mandatory induction arrangements" if they are new to the "British cultural environment."

Soccer leaders also want greater consistency in the response by police to racist abuse at matches and legislation to clamp down on abusive messages on social networking sites.

FA Chairman David Bernstein says "this is a commitment on behalf of English football to ensure the game is inclusive and free of discrimination."
