British Prime Minister David Cameron will meet with football chiefs and anti-racism campaigners later Wednesday to address the recent spate of racist incidents that have blighted the national game.
"The government is committed to working with the football community as a whole to address and tackle issues of discrimination, recognising that great progress has been made, but also that there is more to be done across a range of issues," said the statement.
Representatives from the Football Association, the Premier League, the Football League, The Professional Footballers' Association and the League Managers' Association are expected to attend along with ex-players John Barnes, Graeme Le Saux, Paul Elliott.
Cameron's intervention comes following high-profile incidents.
Suarez has only recently returned for Liverpool after serving an eight-match ban for racially abusing Evra during a game in October.
At a charity reception last month, Cameron said: "My message is clear: we will not tolerate racism in Britain. It has absolutely no place in our society and where it exists, we will kick it out.
"Our football governing bodies, clubs and footballers themselves have a vital role to play as role models in this respect."
