Soccer is history. The story has chapters of soccer. Disasters are part of history. And, in a violent way, these three have been related.
Not only in America, not only in Europe. Around the world.
We love talking about football as a globalizing phenomenon. Well, external factors that do not benefit are also globalized, and much more than you think.

After losing the most attractive final of Copa Libertadores and seeing the wounded in Greece during the AEK – Ajax, it is time to think. Analyze.
There are no short-term solutions without studying the situation.
In one day, violence is not eradicated, but in a day-to-day job, it does decreases.
As a media, we make a call and we become aware.
What are you doing?
