Hannover 96 takes over patronage over the CSD


The football club Hannover 96 takes over this year with its social initiative 96plus the patronage over the Christopher Street Day in the Lower Saxony state capital. This informed the club, which currently plays in the second Bundesliga, on Friday on his Homepage3.”96plus is committed to making people feel welcome and at ease, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or background, and free from any discrimination,” the statement said. “For some time now, 96plus has been involved in the ‘Hannover ist bunt’ project for a diverse and open society, and the patronage for the CSD Hannover is therefore another important component of our commitment.”Hannover 96 was one of the first signatories of the Berlin Declaration4 against homophobia in sport in 2013. The association also donated for the project “Football for Diversity” of the Federal Foundation Magnus Hirschfeld.The CSD Hannover takes place – as last year – on the Whitsun weekend. The highlight will be the parade on Saturday, June 3rd, accompanied by a two-day street party. (Cw)
