Former Wales rugby ace, businessman and TV presenter Rupert Moon is showing his support for the Dyfed-Powys Police Show Violence the Red Card campaign as Wales prepare to take on Belgium in the Euro 2016 quarter finals tonight. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Running throughout the EUFA Euro 2016 football championship, the campaign seeks to prevent violence, and inparticular domestic violence, throughout the Dyfed-Powys region by encouraging people to be mindful of how much alcohol they drink and the effect it could have on their behaviour. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Rupert has saved the referee-style red cards to his mobile phone to use if he spots any trouble during the Euros. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The referee-style red cards emblazoned with the messages ‘drink aware’ and ‘show domestic violence the red card’ have been produced to provide a light-hearted, interactive way to deliver serious messages. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The campaign encourages football fans to be mindful of how much alcohol they’re drinking and how they’re behaving to prevent violence whether out at a pub, a football club or in the comfort of their own homes. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Rupert Moon said: “I fully support Dyfed-Powys Police’s Show Violence the Red Card campaign. Wales reaching this stage of the Euros 2016 is a massive achievement in itself. Don’t ruin the enjoyment of the occasion by getting too drunk and hitting out whether in the pub or at home.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The red cards are being distributed to licensees that will be showing the Euro 2016 games. Bar staff and customers will be encouraged to hold up a red card if they see any inappropriate behaviour to stop it escalating to violence. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Members of the public are also invited to get involved in the campaign by posting photos of themselves holding up the campaign red cards on the Dyfed-Powys Police Facebook and Twitter pages using #redcardtoviolence. The images are available on the force’s Twitter and Facebook profiles or website. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
