There are Brazilian studies proving that a sudden spike in domestic violence occurs when soccer matches are being televised.
To counter this trend, an additional indicator board was placed next to the usual electronic scoreboard inside the stadium, this second board keeping a record of the number of times women were the victims of violence during a game.
This awareness campaign successfully helped to lower the incidence of domestic violence during soccer matches.
Karpat Polat: “Second Scoreboard is a strong campaign from Costa Rica
which put a second scoreboard on the TV during international football
matches. This second scoreboard shows how many domestic violence
situations have been recorded during the matches. Such a solid way to
raise awareness about this horrible problem.”
