FRANKFURT - FIFA plans to stage an anti-racism day during the World Cup to demonstrate its opposition to discrimination in any form, organizers said Wednesday.

The action, coordinated with the tournament's organizing committee, will take place during the quarter-finals on June 30 and July 1.

Other moves planned to combat racism include television ads and a huge round banner draped over the centre circle at each of the 12 World Cup stadiums.

Bearing the World Cup motto "A Time to Make Friends," the World Cup logo "Germany 2006" and the slogan "Say No to Racism," the banners will be displayed at each of the 64 matches until shortly before kick-off.

"The aim is to send a clear message to the world against racism, the organizing committee said.
