GRASSHOOPER CLUB ZURICH AND FC ZURICH TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLENCE

Under the motto "Fuessball ohni Gwalt" (Football without Violence), Grasshopper Club Zurich and FC Zurich are sending a clear signal against violence and the recurring incidents of violence between supporters of the two teams on the occasion of the 280th Zurich derby. 

Such incidents, which take place in and around the city of Zurich and often also affect children and families, have nothing to do with the sport we love, but endanger the lives of many innocent people.

Grasshopper Club Zurich and FC Zurich condemn such acts of violence in the strongest possible terms and are jointly committed to a passionate, dedicated and yet respectful fan culture.

Football is a game that stands for fairness, integration and togetherness. A game that has no place for violence. A game that should allow young and old fans to show their colors with pride and joy. Whether at school or in the city, everyone should have the right to wear their team's jersey without feeling endangered or attacked. No matter which side you are on.

To further emphasize the importance of this common cause, all players will wear the campaign slogan "Fuessball ohni Gwalt" on the back of their jerseys at the upcoming derby.

With the new orange derby shirt, which has been specially designed for this occasion, Grasshopper Club Zürich wants to sensitize all its fans to this issue and at the same time play an active role in the prevention of violence.

In fact, GC Zurich will donate 20% of the proceeds from the Derbyshirts sold to the Zurich-based association <link www.gefangenehelfenjugendlichen.ch - external-link-new-window "Link auf eine externe Seite - Grasshopper Club Zürich">"Prisoners Help Young People"</link> to accompany and actively support young people on their way into the adult world.

"Football is a sport that connects and brings together children and adults all over the world. It is extremely important that we players set a good example by representing values such as respect and tolerance despite the great rivalry and by standing up for football without violence," says GC captain Amir Abrashi.

Grasshopper Club Zürich and FC Zürich stand together for football without violence. For a healthy and peaceful rivalry! Not only on derby days, but 365 days a year.

Fuessball ohni Gwalt. Football without violence.
