KAS Eupen and Standard Liège attracted a lot of interest with their #NOTORACISM and #FAIRPLAY4ALL action on the 22nd match day of the Pro League. At its match in Sclessin, the two teams wanted to set an example in the fight against mounting racism among certain incorrigible fans, coming out in the first half wearing #NOTORACISM shirts.
KAS Eupen then offered these shirts, signed by the wearer, for sale as part of a fundraising action. The action went down very well with KAS Eupen fans and business partners, with all shirts, each one with a EUR 120 price tag, finding a buyer. The total EUR 1320 received was then rounded up to EUR 1500 by KAS Eupen, with respective amounts of EUR 500 going to three associations working in the region on integrating foreigners: the Haus der Familie in Kelmis, Patchwork in St. Vith and AMONSOLI in Verviers.
The cheques will be handed over to the heads of the three associations next Saturday evening during the Pro League tie between KAS Eupen and KSC Lokeren. KAS Eupen would like to thank all those who purchased a shirt for their support.
