INTRODUCTION

Lampedusa. Italy's southermost island, a mere 70 miles from the North African coast, and now home to thousands of refugees fleeing from war-torn Syria, Eritrea and Libya, flooding the tiny outcrop of land of 6,000 locals. Some talk of a clash of civilisations. Some talk of a clash of religions. Lampedusa is not about this. Lampedusa is about the everyday need to save human beings, abandoned to their fate in the sea, where thousands die every year attempting the crossing. The community of Lampedusa doesn’t care about their skin colour, their choice of religion or their country of origin. This community only cares about giving help to those who have risked their lives for a better future for their families.

 

THE PROJECT

“The Bridge - Un Ponte per Lampedusa” is being run in association with Lega B and their official charity B Solidale Onlus, the clubs from Serie A and Serie B and other partners. Together, our aim is to raise €100,000 which will part-fund a new football pitch on the island of Lampedusa with a grandstand, changing rooms and floodlights. This target is to be reached before the end of the campaign in January 2017.

The project will see the creation of a public football pitch that will host the local amateur youth team, students from all grade levels and refugees. It will provide a range of opportunities including sport, training courses, non-sporting events and, most importantly, integration. The aim is that the pitch will quickly become a social hub for the community of Lampedusa. The island has seen a large influx of refugees in the past few years due to its proximity to North Africa and a project like this could be a strong unifying force for everyone living and arriving there.

The project also involves the co-financing of activities for the youth teams that, for budgetary reasons, cannot participate in the respective federal championships.
