Stoiximan, Major Sponsor of the Stoiximan Super League, with the message “Giving voice to everyone” shows its solidarity
Stoiximan Major Sponsor of the Super League Greek Championship, together with the organizing authority, have dedicated the 5th matchday of the Stoiximan Super League to the international day of sign languages, aiming to raise awareness and inform the public about our deaf and hearing impaired people.
In this context, the football players of all teams in the seven games of the 5th matchday of Stoiximan Super League, have entered the field wearing shirts with the name “Stoiximan Super League” that were also printed in the sign language alphabet. At the same time, the teams, upon entering and presenting themselves on the playing field, held a large banner with the message ” Giving voice to everyone ” written in sign language as well, showing their support for this excellent initiative. A special moment was when the footballers made the sign of love in the international sign language with their hands.
To get the message right and spell out the word Super League and Stoiximan, Stoiximan has collaborated with Hands Up, the Organization of Sign Language Interpreters and Accessibility Services.
At the same time, Stoiximan announced its initiative to offer through Hands Up and in collaboration with the Smiyl sign language school, a cycle of 10 sign language lessons for 10 people. This move aims to strengthen the spread of sign language and is an important offer, with the aim of creating a more inclusive and accessible society for all.
