Under the slogan “A Club for All”, Estoril Praia sports club will start using flags and accessories, during their games, to fight against racism, homophobia and gender inequality.
This Sunday, the 24th of February, during the II Liga opening game, Estoril Praia will present this new campaign to fight racism, homophobia and gender inequality.
The sports club team will wear a scarf and a captain’s armband with the rainbow colors, as a representation of the LGBT+ community.
This initiative comes as a response to the Portuguese Charter for Diversity and with the commitment with the United Nations for the Sustainable Development Goals, signed in 2018, taking news steps in helping to build a better and more inclusive world.
“We want to say to the world that in our sports club, there isn’t any type of space or thought for discrimination nor prejudice. The rainbow scarf, per si, is already a clear message, although we want to go even further. So we already have planned processes to create and give formation to the coaches, coordinators and leaders, with the aim to teach them ways to identify, care and appreciate diversity. We will not permit any kind of discrimination act in our club” says Alexandre Faria, president of the Estoril Praia sports club.
The Sunday match between Estoril Praia and Académica is schedule to 8 pm in Estádio António Coimbra da Mota.
For the time being, you can get one scarf from the Estoril Praia Store, and help support more of this kind of campaigns and initiatives, as together we can change the minds and help make a difference.
