Players Show Off Boots To Make Aware Of Disorder DMD



The initiative has been already started some weeks ago not by a big team but by a small Turkish club. The initiative spread on social media. Each club which joined it asked another club to join in the campaign. After a few weeks, it reached the biggest Turkish teams, while Galatasaray made it global asking Spanish side Sevilla to join it.


The campaign sees footballers showing off their football boots on social media to make aware that thousands of kids all over the world are not able to walk, run and wear off their shoes because of a disorder called DMD.

As of today, FC Schalke 04 has not yet responded to Sevilla's request to join the initiative.

It is not the first time that clubs or players are using soccer cleats for a good case. In example, 1,000 pairs of football boots following donations from fans around Europe were given to children at the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordanas as part of the UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour. Many players are giving away the football boots that they don't anymore to less privileged people.
