VBET has become a partner for the celebrity charity football match like no other, Game4Ukraine, taking place at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge Stadium in London on Saturday August 5th.
Two star-studded teams, captained by Ukrainian football legends and ambassadors of the fundraising platform UNITED24, Andriy Shevchenko and Oleksandr Zinchenko, have been announced on the official website.
This match is supported by the initiative of President Volodymyr Zelensky, and the international legends match and live music event is being produced by Legends Soccer Group for a global fundraising broadcast.
The main focus of the event and show is to drive donations for the restoration of Mykhailo-Kotsiubynsky Lyceum in the Chernihiv region.
VBET’s branding will appear on the players’ shorts and at Stamford Bridge Stadium. In collaboration with UNITED24 and Game4Ukraine, VBET will organise activities to promote the match in Ukraine and other European countries where the global group of VBET operates.
Artem Ivanytsky, CMO, VBET Ukraine, says: “We understand the value of responsibility towards the country, society and players. This is why VBET could not stay indifferent to this event. We proudly support Andriy Shevchenko and Oleksandr Zinchenko in their endeavours.
“The global brand VBET will not only be a partner of this symbolic football match. VBET Ukraine will actively participate in additional activations aimed at increasing the donation amount.”
Yaroslava Hres, Coordinator of UNITED24, adds: “This match will be the biggest charitable event for UNITED24 not only internationally but also overall for the platform. We have a very important mission ahead of us – to raise enough funds to bring back 415 children to their classrooms at the beloved Mykhailo-Kotsiubynsky Lyceum.
“We thank VBET Ukraine for deciding to share this great responsibility with us and becoming the first Ukrainian partner of the match.”
