OGC Nice will wear special kit to honor Nice terror victims

OGC Nice will play in a special kit honoring the 85 lives taken on the Bastille Day terror attacks.

Only four days after the conclusion of Euro 2016, a terrorist attack in the French city of Nice left 85 people dead and hundreds injured.

The popular tourist destination was targeted by terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who drove his truck into a crowd of people on Bastille Day.


HEARTFELT TRIBUTE

OGC Nice announced they will wear a one-off kit, as a tribute to the victims who lost their lives.

The sponsorless shirt has the names of all 85 victims in the shape of a love heart.

Nice will wear the kit in their opening French Ligue 1 clash against Stade Rennais F.C.

“An individual tribute will be paid to each of the 85 victims,” Nice said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Nothing will ever be the same, but we need to get back on our feet.”

The victims names will be read out before a minute of silence takes place before kick-off. Youth players will release 85 white balloons. Fans have also been asked to wear white, including match officials and players prior to kick-off.

Wonderful tribute by OGC Nice.
