The '''[[File:Suarezevra.jpg|right|190px]]Luis Suarez-Patrice Evra incident''' refers to a race row that occurred between Liverpool forward [[Luis Suarez]] and Manchester United left back Patrice Evra- a Frenchman of African descent- during the [[2011-12 season|2011-12 season]]. This incident was the most prominent of a surprising number of incidents involving racial abuse during the 2011-12 Premier League season in England and it received substantial media coverage. Part of the reason for this was the fact that Suarez and [[Liverpool F.C.|Liverpool Football Club]] staunchly maintained the Uruguayan's innocence- despite Suarez being found guilty, as well as the substantial and continued fallout that followed.

On 21 December 2011, the Liverpool squad along with manager [[Kenny Dalglish]] wore T-shirts bearing Suarez' name and image during the pre-match warm up to a game against Wigan to show their support. This was widely applauded by Liverpool fans, but condemned by most others. The Liverpool playing squad also released a joint statement, detailing their support of Suarez, stating "We totally support Luis and we want the world to know that. We know he is not racist." Suarez' lawyers confirmed he intended to appeal the ban.

However on 3 January 2012, after digesting the [http://www.thefa.com/TheFA/Disciplinary/NewsAndFeatures/2011/~/media/Files/PDF/TheFA/Disciplinary/Written%20reasons/FA%20v%20Suarez%20Written%20Reasons%20of%20Regulatory%20Commission.ashx 115-page document] released by the panel detailing the case and the reasons for the punishment they awarded, Liverpool confirmed that there would be no appeal. The club still felt that the FA made their decision on "unsubstantiated accusations," stating "The FA and the panel chose to consistently and methodically accept and embrace arguments leading to a set of conclusions that found Mr. Suarez to "probably" be guilty while in the same manner deciding to completely dismiss the testimony that countered their overall suppositions." The club were concerned however that continuing to fight the ban might endanger the fight against racism being undertaken by world football, as well as further damage the reputation of the club which had been damaged by the whole affair. "It is time to put the Luis Suarez matter to rest and for all of us, going forward, to work together to stamp out racism in every form both inside and outside the sport. It is for this reason that we will not appeal the eight-game suspension of Luis Suarez."
