The move comes after reports of racist chants directed at Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, who is black, during a match at Hellas Verona last weekend. Milan says the anti-racism initiative will be launched during Saturday's derby against Inter Milan.
Inter striker Romelu Lukaku was subjected to racist chants in a match at Cagliari this month. Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis, who is South African, says: "Italian football needs to wake up and take a strong stance against racist behaviors. AC Milan will take a leadership position on this issue. . We believe that we have a moral obligation to do everything we can to address this issue."
