England's Bernstein and Webb join Boateng and Altidore on FIFA anti-racism panel

Outgoing Football Association chairman David Bernstein and top referee Howard Webb will be a part of FIFA's new campaign to tackle racism.

The world football governing body has devised an anti-racism panel called 'Task Force' who will look to banish racism from the modern game.

CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb will take the reins as chairman of the 12-man group which also includes AC Milan and Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng and AZ Alkmaar and USA striker Jozy Altidore - both of whom have been racially abused during matches this season.

Also on the panel, which will meet for the first time on 6 May to present to the FIFA Congress in Mauritius at the end of the month, is Marcel Mathier, the chairman of FIFA's disciplinary committee and Claudio Sulser, the former chairman of FIFA's ethics committee and Piara Powar, the head of European anti-racism body FARE.
