Serie A teams to honour Genoa bridge collapse victims with commemorative shirts
January 28, 2022
SERIE A will honour the victims of the Genoa bridge collapse in the next round of fixtures.
All players and officials will have a patch on their shorts featuring the message "Genoa in our hearts".
The decision comes after two games – Milan vs Genoa and Sampdoria vs Fiorentina – were postponed on the opening weekend due to the disaster.
Last week, the Ponte Morandi collapsed, killing 43 people and leaving many homeless.
Italian clubs have also set up a memorial fund to raise money for the victims.
Serie A president Gaetano Micciche said: "As a sign of participation and solidarity with the victims of the drama of Genoa, Serie A will establish, as already announced, a fund that will be allocated to the needs of the Genoese population, in agreement with the authorities.
