UK: London football club goes viral with antifascist jersey

The London non-league Clapton Community FC football club played their first away game against Ealing Town on Saturday, after their new away kit became a hit in Spain and England for paying tribute to the international Brigade of fighters in the Spanish Civil War. The new away kit is in the same colours as the original flag of the international brigade and also has the slogan «No Pasaran (they... Еще shall not pass)» printed on its back. «We needed an away kit different to obviously the other Clapton so we had a little kind of competition, and so our fans designed shirts and obviously round by round they kind of chose which one they wanted to go for,» Clapton CFC player Geoff Ocran said. Regarding the antifascist message, Ocran said «that's what the fans believe in, that's the ethos of the club, you know? Inclusion for all, that's always the message.» Clapton CFC turned the game around during the second half and won 2-1 against Ealing Town. According to reports, Clapton CFC have sold 2,500 kits before even playing their first match.
