What's this?

UK charity Tender, which works to promote healthy relationships, has created a film to highlight how domestic abuse rises after England is knocked out of a World Cup.

The campaign ad draws on research from Lancaster University, which analysed crime figures during the 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cups, and found that domestic abuse rose by 26 per cent when the English national team won or drew, with a 38 percent increase when the national team lost.

Created by BMB, the film shows a woman worriedly watching the game and depicts her reaction after England was knocked out of the tournament.

It forms part of Tender’s wider 2014 World Cup campaign #Standupworldcup that asks individuals and organisations to “stand together” during the tournament and say “no excuses” when it comes to domestic violence.
