Men's First Team
National League South · Att: 720 Sat 26 August Saunders Transport Community Stadium
  • Pavey (19')
  • Cullen (59')
  • Upward (63')

The Vanarama National League South clash will see the teams led out by a very special group of 22 Ukrainian refugees.

Mascots and their families will be given full hospitality at the Saunders Transport Community Stadium, as well as taking part in a penalty shootout at half-time.

Bucket collections inside the Stadium help to raise money for relevant charities, including the UNITED24 initiative.

UNITED24 is a Ukrainian Government-run platform, put in place by President Zelensky, in order to give people a chance to aid Ukrainians in their time of need. It allows Ukrainian communities, such as the one here today, to have a say in where that money goes, be it humanitarian aid, medical aid or even defence.

It has many ambassadors around the world, including legendary footballer Andriy Shevchenko and current Arsenal defender Oleksandr Zinchenko and was the driving force behind the recent Game4Ukraine held at Stamford Bridge in Pre-Season.

Connor Field, of Farnborough Football Club’s Commercial and Partnership team, commented:

“The idea is to help raise locally awareness for the housing of refugees both locally and in the wider area.”

“With Ukrainian Independence Day taking place on that same weekend, we thought it was the ideal time to show our support to the refugees.”

“Football is a universal language and plays such an important part in the lives of so many, so what better way than to help integrate the Ukrainian people into our wider community.”

Thank you for your support.
