All together to say “# ENOUGH!” .
In conjunction with 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Lega Serie B takes sides to counter what is increasingly an unacceptable social scourge.
Also this year, thanks to the collaboration with the technical sponsor Kappa, the Lega Serie B, on the occasion of the 14th day of the championship, intends to raise awareness of the public opinion against an increasingly worrying phenomenon.

To give even more strength to the message, this year it will take the field alongside the IFAD Serie B League, the UN agency that deals with the fight against social injustice and poverty in the world, and the Department of Public Security of the Ministry of ‘Interior, every day engaged in the fight against all violence.

The Director of the Criminal Analysis Service, Senior Manager of the State Police Stefano Delfini will also be present at the Stirpe.
‘Violence against women is an intolerable crime, which is fought and defeated through a cultural change that places respect, the revival of values and growing together at the center, what characterizes team success in sport – says Balata –. Lega Serie B, the Italian Championship, wants to be the spokesperson for these values in families, schools and the whole community, symbolically testifying the no to violence with the red ball‘.
