A game that has remained in the hearts of the fans Fortitudo, a player who had just arrived in Bologna who took the team by the hand and returned from the away game with a victory together with his teammates, saving the F from relegation to the third series. Perhaps a defeat would have been the end of everything, perhaps not, however one day, April 2, 1992, will remain an indelible memory, both for the many present in Reggio Emilia and for those who followed the match on TV or on the radio.
The Celebrative Sticker #43 solidarity sticker is double, it celebrates the player, it celebrates the event, in the name and in the myth of Teo Alibegovic. The player from Zenica (Bosnia Herzegovina) in Bologna was not known by many, it almost seemed like a “desperate” operation by the F to try to win a fundamental match. The blue-and-white people dream of salvation, they rely on their players and on the newcomer. Who in that short period of time begins to discover the environment, the visceral love for those colors and for that shirt. And he reciprocates.
88-93 the final result of that match, 28 points from Teo Alibegovic. Fortitudo is saved. Teo remains only the following season in Bologna, but that people and the F will always carry them in his heart, even when, excited, he returns as an opponent as a player of Alba Berlin.
The solidarity sticker was made possible thanks to the collaboration with the Fortitudo Museum Association which made its photographic and memorabilia archive available, such as for example the highly sought-after match ticket and thanks to the collaboration with Fortitudo Pallacanestro Bologna 103 which gave the authorization to insert the official logo of the club on the sticker.
