Cymru to play match for Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal
Written by Gavin on 16th March 2022
The Football Association of Wales is pleased to announce that in a show of support to our friends in Ukraine, Cymru will play an international challenge match on Tuesday, 29 March (KO 7.45pm) at Cardiff City Stadium to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Cymru’s opponent for the match will be determined depending on the outcome of the World Cup play-off semi-final with Austria on 24 March.
Should Cymru win against Austria, they will play the losing team from the Path B semi-final between Sweden and Czech Republic. If Cymru fail to win against Austria, Tuesday’s opponents in Cardiff will be Scotland.
Tickets for the game go on sale to The Red Wall from 10:00am on Friday, 18 March and fans will be able to add an optional donation to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal when purchasing their ticket.
The Cymru Men’s National Team will be making a donation to the appeal and the DEC will also run a bucket collection at Cardiff City Stadium. Any profit made by the FAW from the staging of the match will also be donated.
18 million people are projected to become affected by the conflict with four million people expected to be displaced, leaving behind their jobs, belongings and loved ones. Donations made prior to and at the Cymru international match will help to provide food, water, shelter, healthcare and protection.
Cymru fans can donate right now at dec.org.uk.
