      The club has penned in, together with other Serie A clubs, a text to actively combat, once and for all, the problem of racism in the stadiums

      It’s a strong message to say "enough", to eradicate a serious problem that afflicts Italian stadiums and that must be eradicated once and for all. Through an "open letter to those who love Italian football", Juventus, along with other Serie A clubs, is actively opposed to racism.

      It’s a letter created from the comparison between the companies; Lega Serie A, FIGC and international experts, so that the common effort is aimed at turning pages once and for all through a solid anti-racism policy. 

      In fact, it is possible to say NO to racism.

      This is the full text of the letter:

      An open letter to all those who love Italian football

      We have to publicly recognise that we have a serious problem with racism. 

      It’s a problem that we have not done enough to combat over the years.

      Images of players being racially abused in Italian football have been viewed and discussed all around the world this season and that shames us all. 

      No individual should ever be subjected to racist abuse – inside or outside of football – and we can no longer stay silent on this issue or wait for it to magically disappear.

      Driven by the clubs, positive conversations have been held in recent weeks with Lega Serie A, FIGC and international experts on how to tackle and eradicate this issue from the game.

      We, the undersigned clubs, are united by our desire for serious change and Lega Serie A has stated its intention to lead the way by delivering a comprehensive and robust Serie A anti-racism policy, stricter new laws and regulations and a plan for educating those within the game about the scourge of racism.

      We don’t have any more time to waste.

      We must now act with speed, with purpose and with unity and we call on you, the fans, to support us in this vitally important endeavour.

      Yours sincerely,

      Atalanta, Bologna, Brescia, Cagliari, Fiorentina, Genoa, Hellas Verona, Inter Milan, Juventus, Lazio, Lecce, AC Milan, Napoli, Parma, AS Roma, Sampdoria, Sassuolo, SPAL, Torino, Udinese
