The document supports the idea of the president of the Brazilian Football Confederation, Edenaldo Rodriguez, to apply sporting sanctions against teams whose fans exhibit racist behavior and make practical suggestions. Vasco, whose history is linked to the fight against discrimination, especially racism, wants to play a leading role in the movement. The club was the first in Brazilian football, for example, to elect a black president, Candido José de Araujo, in 1904.
It is time to put an end to racism and prejudice in Brazilian football once and for all. For this, bold and innovative measures must be taken. Today, we present a set of proposals to the Brazilian Federation and the clubs based on our best practices, with proven results. Fighting racism is an integral part of our club’s DNA. We are proud that Vasco is the pen that writes history – said President Jorge Salgado.
Educational measures and penalties

In the letter delivered by Jorge Salgado, which General Electric Accessed, Vasco suggests pedagogical measures before punitive measures. In June, for example, Vasco’s organizing supporters signed a statement containing a code of conduct and ethics drawn up by the club’s legal and integrity departments. In the document, the groups pledged to adopt transparency practices and strengthen the fight against violence, harassment and discrimination in stadiums, which is also happening through biased cries. Vasco understands that all clubs must incorporate these practices. Not only players, but all football professionals.
Clubs that have taken such measures will have some kind of relief before a possible sporting penalty, especially in isolated cases. However, in the event of a recurrence, the club could be penalized by the loss of field leadership. In the latter case, in an act of final third distinction, there will be a loss of points in the tournament.
Vasco also mentions and suggests that clubs educate their players and staff. The club regularly has a teacher who gives lectures to the base and the professional team about the history of Vasco and addresses the issue of racism so that its players are actively involved in the cause.
