The competition is organised by the multi-ethnic group of RFC Lions Ska Caserta and it is a part of SportAntenne Uisp project.
SportAntenne is back, the Uisp project that aims at the appearance, the mediation and the fight against racial discriminations. In fact, Wednesday February 14th will take place “Caserta Antiracist Cup”, the competition organised by the multi-ethnic group of RFC Lions Ska Caserta and that this year is included in the awareness project “SportAntenne”.
Three teams will try to win the cup: RFC Ska Lions, ASD Family and Stella Rossa 2006. The ASD Family is a team born this year and composed by refugees and asylum seekers hosts in the extraordinary reception centre of Piana di Monteverna (Ce). Stella Rossa is a football team born in 2006 in the Neapolitan territory, in Scampia, and it is linked with RFC Lions by a strong friendship which goes back to the Mondiali Antirazzisti experience of 2012. Three teams will have a triangular competition composed by 30 minutes matches.
In the “sport centre Talamonti” will be set up an info point of SportAntenne by the staff of local Uisp section who deal with this project against discriminations since one year. SportAntenne is a Uisp project that financed by the Ministry of the Interior and European Union (Asylum, migrations and integration fund 2014-2020). For this project Uisp works with UNAR – National Anti-Racial Discrimination Office – in order to let emerge direct and indirect racial discriminations using and valorising the territorial network that Uisp build in 70 years of activities. SportAntenne is a project that aims at let emerge that discriminatory phenomenon, using mediation through sport. Several notifications have been sent to the Uisp Caserta Antenna, concerning episodes of discrimination and racism that took place inside and outside reception centres, in the streets, on football fields and on the bleachers, with public offices and concerning the rent of an apartment.
