The killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in Minneapolis, sparked protests all over the world, with hundreds of thousands of people marching against racism.
In Rome, Paulo Fonseca and his players all took a knee before training at Trigoria to show their support for Black Lives Matter.
Now, for the remainder of the Serie A season, the AS Roma team are wearing a special patch on their left sleeve which features the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ along with ‘ASSIEME’ – meaning Together, the campaign Roma Cares launched during the Covid-19 crisis.
The team will wear the patch for a total of 12 Serie A games.
The club is auctioning off match-worn shirts, featuring the Black Lives Matter / ASSIEME patch, to raise money for a number of prominent anti-racism organisations as well as for Roma Cares, in order to help develop new club-run, anti-racist initiatives with children in Italy.
When you participate in the auctions you'll be making a concrete contribution to the fight against racism.
