According to the statistics from a research published in the journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, risk of domestic abuse rose 26% when England’s team won, and even hiked upto 38% when they lost. A very powerful campaign by Tender (a non-profit against domestic abuse), British charity for using theatre and the arts to end domestic violence.
“Though research on the rise of domestic violence during the World Cup is relatively new and for lack of a better word, sparse, the trend is alarming and impossible to ignore. The weather is getting warmer, more drinks will be consumed, emotions will be heightened, and none of this excuses violence. We ask that individuals and organisations to stand together this World Cup season and say ‘No excuses’.” – Tender
