Lucio Cogode and Marco Quarticcio Presentation - 'Show Racism the Red Card' Webinar
31 August 2021
On the 6th of July between 2 PM and 3:30 PM ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ hosted a webinar on anti-discrimination and anti-racism programmes in football, such as our European awareness-raising campaign and our #DiversityWins educational programme that promotes diversity, respect, and tolerance on and off the pitch.
During the webinar, we saw presentations from professional football clubs from different countries who have participated in our programme such as Pro League Belgium, Club Brugge, Toulouse FC, Inter d’Escaldes, and Nuova Peloro. The EFDN also shared a presentation on how you can use our free resources and become a part of the biggest anti-discrimination campaign in Europe.
In this article we will focus on the last presentation which was given during the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ Webinar, which was from the Italian Grassroot club ‘A.S.D. Nuova Peloro’.
Firstly, Lucio who is the Social Section Manager at the club is mostly in charge to make sure that the club keeps growing and gaining followers on social media. Secondly, Marco who is the Vice President of Nuova Peloro, was firstly the captain of the team, but focuses nowadays on what is going on off the pitch rather than on.
During the presentation, the two emphasized the importance of why the club was created. It was not only created to play and enjoy the beautiful game, but also to recover and highlight the value and social importance of the sport.
