“Un calcio al terremoto” is the fund-raising initiative that Sassuolo Calcio activated during the course of the 2012/2013 season following the earthquake that hit Emilia in may 2012. The club’s aim was to finance projects promoting sport related activities in the area hit by the earthquake.
The initiative was tied to the 2012/2013 seasonal ticket campaign, during which a special 30 euro offer was reserved for Under-18’s and women as well as residents (men, women and children) of towns hit by the earthquake. All funds collected from the sale of these 30 euro seasonal tickets (after tax) were inserted in the “Un calcio al terremoto” counter together with other funds gathered through-out the season. In particular the income from the sale of special 2 euro tickets in certain matches reserved again for Under-18’s and women (including away supporters) as well as residents of towns hit by the earthquake.
