Pitch International working with SPORT4PEACE to support Ukraine
SPORT4PEACE targets millions with incredible sports & entertainment auction to raise funds for
World’s most incredible Sports Experience Auction, with amazing prizes including playing your own match at Wembley, VIP paddock tickets for the Doha Grand Prix and a 6 person VVIP Champions League experience including private jet and luxury hotel on offer.
Sport4Peace, is the Humanitarian Action Fund inspired by Andriy Shevchenko that will be auctioning “money can’t buy experiences”, donated from the wide world of sport with the aim to raise over £1M to help alleviate those impacted by the war in Ukraine.
With all the proceeds split between Man City player Oleksandr Zinchenko’s Football for Ukraine charity, UN World Food Programme, UNICEFand Laureus Sport for Good – it means that all donations will have an immediate impact, providing food, shelter and safety for millions of people in Ukraine and beyond.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Kelly Cates from his Kyiv home, Shevchenko gives his personal view on the ongoing war in Ukraine, the support he has already had from the sporting world, why Sport4Peace is so important and how the funds will be used.
“I can see sad faces, but the people have a good spirit…(we’ve) always had a fighting spirit and have a belief that slowly slowly we can begin to have a normal life again. There are sirens for missile attacks, which is scary, but this is the situation we’re in.”
“You can see clearly, when you donate, where the money goes…we’re going to go and buy machines for hospitals, help with infrastructure to rebuild buildings and bridges to reunite areas so people can travel”
Concerned people from the World of Sport including; Gary Lineker OBE, Baroness Grey-Thompson DBE, Eoin Morgan CBE, Sir Andrew Strauss, Jamie Carragher, John Terry, Petr Cech, Mesut Ozil and many more are putting their time, effort and money behind the #Sport4Peace initiative – creating the largest most inclusive sporting experience auction of its type in the UK, an auction which anyone can be part of by visiting https://linktr.ee/sport4peace.
