Let’s Cheer Fairly

Let’s Cheer Fairly campaign, designed to promote the return of fair play and sportsmanship to cheering at stadiums and arenas, continued to gather steam yesterday in SOS Children's Village Lekenik. The campaign, initiated by SOS Children's Village Lekenik, also received the support of the representatives of the Croatian Water Polo Federation:

Perica Bukić, Vice President of the Croatian Water Polo Federation, Renato Živković, Secretary-General of Croatian Water Polo Federation and Ratko Rudić, Head Coach of the Croatian national water polo team.


Croatian athletes are highly acclaimed in the world of sports. The fact that their accomplishments are known around the globe increases the pride and respect of their fans and admirers even further. Let’s Cheer Fairly campaign aims to encourage cheering in the spirit of fair play at sportsmanship, so that the third team – the fans themselves – can make our athletes, and all the citizens of our fair country, equally proud.


This campaign kickstarts the initiative by the youngest sports fans in Croatia, and all true sports fans and admirers of fair play and sportsmanship, to promote cheering in a civilized manner!


Mario Čović, the director of SOS Children's Village Lekenik, explained the importance of instilling respect for sports and cheering in general, and pointed out: “… Love of sports is one of the basic traits that we nurture in our children, as demonstrated by many activities we have undertaken in SOS Children's Village and SOS Youth Facilities from the very beginning. This is why we want to promote dignity and sportsmanship in spectator sports, where cheering is inevitable, and also why we want to spread this message far and wide.”


This campaign is also endorsed by many organizations from the wider Lekenik area: child organization Planet patuljaka Sisak, FC Lekenik and Association of Sport Organizations and Clubs in the Lekenik Municipality.
