SERIE A players are once again doing their bit to raise awareness for a campaign against violence to women.

They have teamed up with Italian organisation WeWorld Onlus, and will promote the cause at all ten Serie A matches this weekend.


Players will have red stripes on their cheeks as they play their matches.

The striking look seeks to promote WeWorldOnlus' Red Card to Violence campaign.

This week has seen support flood in from social media – with the hashtag #unrossoallaviolenza [red card to violence].

Serie A has supported the campaign before, with stars like Cristiano Ronaldo having donned the red stripe on their cheeks last season.

Italian legends Franco Baresi, Alessandro Costacurta and Francesco Toldo attended the WeWorld Onlus launch event.

Former Inter Milan goalkeeper Toldo said: "Violence is a cultural problem.

"In order to solve this problem, our sons need to be taught the right values and that they need to show respect."

Legendary World Cup winner Alessandro Del Piero is another that has shown his support on social media.

He tweeted: "Violence against women is devious, silent, it is not easy to see it.

"But together we can give it a signal: let's give everyone #unrossoallaviolenza."

And fellow World Cup winner Marco Materazzi tweeted: " 1 woman out of 3 has suffered violence at least once in her life.

"We must give a signal: let's give everyone #unrossoallaviolenza."

Players in the six Serie A fixtures tomorrow, as well as Monday's game between Cagliari and Torino, will also show their support for the campaign.
