Bergamo. There aren’t any World Cup video games in the imageEdon of Redona was born in Bombonera Social Pub in the Ukwati Village: This is the definitive selection of the firm the place all these locations are, a Nutopia Srlwho, regardless of being conscious of the enticing potential of soccer on TV and the advantages that common broadcasts of matches deliver to golf equipment, needed to ship a message towards what the evaluation will do on Sunday in Qatar. .
“It is not shocking: we love the sport of soccer. We love the sports activities aspect, tradition and all its literature. But above all, its social aspect has all the time fascinated us: the energy to collect collectively and unite thousands and thousands of followers, in all corners of the world. And the message that even those that are not wealthy or ready, with will and concepts, can win amongst their colleagues exterior of labor. Precisely for these causes, in the cultural and inclusive that we attempt to promote, we determined in our personal little technique to boycott the World Cup in Qatar, do not show matches in our website. Let’s be trustworthy: it is a painful and financially dangerous choice, particularly for Bombonera, which was born as a sports activities and sharing venue, and sustains itself due to the followers who come to observe the matches. However, we imagine that the worldwide competitors represents the industrial peak of our sport, and we can’t ignore it even when we lose”.
As we have now mentioned, the foundation of this choice is the values (“unlawful for us”) established by the Middle East: “We boycott the World Cup due to the violation of the human rights of girls and the neighborhood. Qatar. A rustic the place homosexuality is illegitimate, and it’s thought-about a psychological sickness – defined by Nutopia – We ignore the work of the staff, so harmful to the level of slavery. Everyone has heard about the greater than 6,000 individuals who died in the development of the stadiums that had been constructed for this occasion. We boycott the enormous and confirmed bribes that the World Cup gave to the world of Qatar. We are on strike to settle, as a result of all the stadiums need to be cooled by about 20 levels for the soccer matches to be over. In addition, a few of the stadiums that had been constructed will be demolished after the match, as a result of they will not be used after 4 weeks. Now it’s recognized that the groups and the followers need to obtain dwa primarily overseas, as a result of there’s not sufficient house in Qatar itself. Therefore, they need to be airlifted a number of instances. We are boycotting press freedom: The Qatari authorities is suppressing press freedom and is making an attempt to influence worldwide journalists to depart.
But if Italy had certified, would the election have been the identical?
“Yeah, nicely, perhaps?” It is troublesome to foretell what we might have carried out in one other universe – he admits – We do not disguise this: Italy’s video games in the World Cup and the European Championship all the time give us a magical night, and additionally symbolize assist for the financial system that’s not. much less vital in troublesome instances. So, in fact, if Italy had been eligible, this choice could be troublesome and very painful. But we prefer to assume that the consequence would have been the identical. And it would not be the first time: even in the previous we had to surrender events or occasions that may have assured us nice monetary assist, selecting a choice that’s appropriate with our values and our strategy. . Many assume, for instance, that Edoné with out its well-known get together of Sangria may not survive, however when the latter was sadly destroyed in the areas of security and respect, inflicting varied issues, we needed to cease it, begin once more. tradition to offer in a brand new approach. A call that many see as loopy, however one which paid off in the finish. “
Strikes sure, no planning in any respect: managers, as a substitute of broadcasting matches, have already created a calendar of different occasions.
“We do not wish to simply say ‘No’ – he explains – We will not solely present the worldwide competitors, however we will additionally begin it by organizing a number of different occasions throughout the competitors. First, in Bombonera we will proceed our applications associated to sports activities which might be ‘much less well-liked’ than soccer, giving everybody the alternative to comply with what they like. We will begin a five-a-side soccer competitors between completely different venues in the metropolis. ‘Bombomania’ will be born, with video games manufactured from pizza and prizes. We will meet once more to make our ‘Mondialissimo’ of outdated video games, remembering well-known matches like Italy – Germany 2006, or Atalanta – Valencia in the Champions League”.
They are in all probability the first to know, by doing what they oversee will not assist change issues in Qatar: “But we’re positive that even these small and ‘non-profitable’ methods can present love for the sport we love, and that the values which have united us proceed to present us this wonderful journey” .
