Over the weekend, players will demonstrate their adherence to the campaign. President Balata: “Heinous crime to be eradicated”
Lega Serie B’s commitment to raising awareness against violence against women is renewed. The initiative of the twenty-first day scheduled over the weekend involves, in addition to the twenty cadet clubs, the Department of Public Security – Central Criminal Police Directorate and the Forensic Congress Body. An ever-present commitment also in the light of the reports of the Ministry of the Interior which tell of a phenomenon with still too high numbers and of the recent cases of feminicide which have appeared in the national news. That’s why the BKT Series will take the field in favor of women this weekend: “To not let our guard down and send messages to the opinion so that this heinous crime, which represents a violation of human rights, is definitively eradicated from society. All through the extraordinary communicative vehicle that is football” strongly affirms the president of Lega di B Mauro Balata.
The initiative will consist in having all the players take the field with a red ribbon on their wrist during the pre-match ceremonial of the twenty-first day. All while on the sideline, on the LEDs, the words No to violence against women will appear with the hashtag #BASTA which takes up the campaign launched in the 14th round, when on the occasion of the international day of November 25th a special red ball was played with with various support initiatives. Feminicide is still a widespread crime; in the period 1 – 15 January 2023, 12 homicides were recorded, with 5 female victims, all killed in the family/affective sphere; of these, 4 met their death at the hands of their partner/ex partner. “Unfortunately disturbing figures” concludes Balata. Prefect Vittorio Rizzi, Deputy Director General of Public Security – Central Director of the Criminal Police, comments: “Gender-based violence is a complex phenomenon that has ancient roots and which requires in-depth and constant joint analysis to be contrasted. I thank the Lega Serie B because today the teams most loved by sportsmen and women can convey a message of fundamental importance together with us Police Forces”.
