We want to thank the Teramo Calcio for giving voice to our initiative during the match against Mestre, for the third league league in Italy.
A great evening in which the values of anti-racism and those of sportiness have merged, giving life to the initiative of BRISWA.
All the players of the two teams wore our shirts while in midfield our banner was displayed. The speaker of the stadium read this brief statement about the initiative:
