Italian Serie B Side Spezia Make Special Strip To Show Solidarity After Paris Attacks

Italian Serie B Side Spezia Make Special Strip To Show Solidarity After Paris Attacks

While most top flight teams in world football are currently in the middle of an international break, there’s still a lot of games being played in the lower divisions.

And on the back of Friday night’s shocking terror attacks in Paris, we’ve witnessed many teams and individuals from the game send their messages of support to the French people.

David Beckham led tributes to the city in which he finished his career, while Scottish champions Celtic had the French flag hoisted above their stadium on Saturday.

And today, Italian Serie B outfit Spezia have made a gesture of solidarity towards France by sporting special strips for their match against Cagliari.

The new kits have the hashtag #JeSuisParis, plus an image of the Eiffel Tower wrapped up in a peace sign which has been spreading around on social media since Friday night.

Other clubs in Italy’s second tier paid their respects by playing the French national anthem, La Marseillaise, before their matches over the weekend.
