As reported by L’Équipe, the Fédération Française de Football will send a part of its ticket revenue to UNICEF to help Ukrainian children affected by the ongoing war with Russia.
The FFF announced today that one euro from each ticket sold for the national team’s upcoming games against Côte d’Ivoire and South Africa will go towards their charitable effort.
With Marseille’s Stade Vélodrome accommodating for 65,000 spectators, and Lille’s Stade Pierre-Mauroy for 50,000, the FFF are likely to raise around €100,000. Tuesday’s game in Lille is already sold out, while Friday’s game in Marseille is likely to be the same, according to the newspaper.
The shirts worn by Les Bleus will also be put up for auction and the revenue generated from their sales is to be added to the charitable donation made by the Federation.
