Four Nine, Solace and NCDV have united to launch Shirt 38, a poignant football shirt symbolising a sobering truth: when England men’s team lose at a major tournament, domestic abuse rises by 38%.

EURO 2024 is here and it’s an exciting time for football fans. But there’s a darker side to the game that doesn’t grab the headlines…

Reports of domestic abuse rise by 38% when the England men’s team loses at a major tournament*.

At Solace, we find that number unacceptable.

Join us this Euros season in our call for No More Injury Time, as we partner with FourNine and NCDV to draw awareness to the dark side of the game.
