UEFA UN FOOTBALL GAME FOR SOLIDARITY
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND
21 APRIL 2018

UEFA and the United Nations Office in Geneva have announced that they will join forces to organise a solidarity football match, with the support of the Republic and Canton of Geneva, the City of Geneva and the Geneva Stadium Foundation.
This charity football match, involving two teams led by renowned football icons and featuring former star players, will take place on Saturday 21 April 2018 at 16.00CET at the Stade de Genève.

Legendary former football star and current UEFA football advisor, Luís Figo, said about the upcoming match:

“I am honoured to participate in this global event. As the most popular sport in the world, football is uniquely placed to bring people together and to be a force for good. The Match for Solidarity is a great opportunity to enhance public awareness and raise funds for humanitarian and development projects. As players, it is great that we can give something back to society and help create a better world. We really count on football fans to come in great numbers and participate in such a team effort for the benefit of less privileged people.”
