Today was a day of solidarity in Vinovo as 130 youngsters from Juve’s Turin Academy came together to celebrate the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in a specially organised event at the club’s training ground.
With another afternoon of sport and entertainment on the agenda – the fourth event of its kind to be arranged in as many years - Juventus took the opportunity once more to reaffirm its commitment to fighting discrimination in all its forms.
Monday’s festivities represented the culmination of a week of activity for the cause which even saw the invitation opened up to the club’s supporters on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtags #UNESCOJuventus and #WhatColour.
Six pitches were primed and prepared for a series of small-sided matches contested by, among others, participants in Juventus’ “Play With Me” initiative, a joint collaboration between the Italian champions and the Turin UNESCO Centre.
As the photos below will show, it was to be a day to remember for all involved.
