“Don’t Cross the Line” to Feature at MLS All Star Game
Major League Soccer announced today that their All Star Game opponents AS Roma will be picking up the mantle of the “Don’t Cross the Line” campaign, and that the initiative will be featured heavily in Kansas City at the end of the month.
Don’t Cross the Line kicked off with an anti-discrimination video produced at last year’s All Star Game in Philadelphia. Roma will produce a public service announcement of their own under the theme, taking a lead in Serie A on the issue. “We are proud to take a part in the ‘Don’t Cross the Line’ program alongside Major League Soccer. AS Roma will always be committed to campaigns whose objectives are to reach out to the world of sport on social themes such as the fight against racism and any form of discrimination,” AS Roma President James Pallotta told MLSSoccer.com.
The campaign will play a big role throughout All Star Game week in Kansas City. Players from both the MLS All Stars and AS Roma will wear a patch commemorating both groups’ commitment to the cause. Areas will be set up at the game for fans to take the pledge on Windows tablets and Don’t Cross the Line swag will be given out will be given out at Sporting Park and other festivities taking place in KC’s Power and Light District.
Fans can always take the Don’t Cross the Line pledge at the MLS WORKS website.
