Football Festival in aid of Ukraine
The Victor Tedesco Stadium in Hamrun was home to a fantastic celebration of football and unity as children from three different academies got together in a football festival in aid of Ukraine. The young players themselves were the real stars of the day, not only participating by enjoying their favourite sport but also collecting funds for the Ukrainian cause. The Hamrun players also welcomed Ukrainian children in their fold in a big sign of respect towards the notion of integration and friendship.
These funds were presented to a representative of the Honorary Consul of Ukraine to Malta and will be devolved to Children of Heroes, a wonderful charity organisation which is supporting children who lost their parents during the war. Commemorative medals of the event were handed out to all participants in remembrance of this special day.
The event was possible with the invaluable support of Hamrun Spartans Daikin Football School of Excellence, the financial support of Alberta Group and the participation of Pieta’ Hotspurs and Balzan football academies.
