Game4Ukraine is the brainchild of Oleksandr Zinchenko and will be raising money for Ukraine following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in early 2022.

Game4Ukraine’s goal is to raise funds to begin the re-building of schools across Ukraine. Currently, 1.5 million Ukrainian Children are studying remotely due to the destruction of their schools, with The Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine estimating the total loss in the educational sector to be 10.6 billion USD.

There will be a huge number of football legends taking part in the game. The Blue Team will be managed by Chelsea Women’s boss Emma Hayes, who will play against the Yellow Team, who will be managed by Arsene Wenger.

Chelsea legends like Michael Essien, Ricardo Carvalho and Gianfranco Zola will be part of the same team as current Chelsea player Mykhailo Mudryk. Arsenal legends like Robert Pires and Jack Wilshere will be part of the Wenger-managed team.

Even more stars like Fabio Cannavaro, Cary Telford and Gerard Pique will also be taking part.

Oleksandr Zinchenko said: “The match at Stamford Bridge on August 5th will be a huge charitable event. 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 Improbable and M2 for being part of this journey with us!

“Their support will enable us to bring joy to people who can’t watch the game at the stadium but still want to feel the atmosphere. Fans can chat, ask questions, and interact with each other, all while our main goal remains to put a smile on the faces of everyone turning in! I am certain it will be a fantastic experience!”

Herman Narula, CEO and Co-Founder of Improbable, said: “It is an honour for us to bring our technology and expertise in fan-player interaction to the Game4Ukraine. Collaborating with an exceptionally talented team, we aim to make meaningful contribution to the cause by granting fans around the globe to also join a show with real interaction and exclusive content.”

Robbie Lyle, Founder and CEO of Global Fan Network, said: “It’s incredible to be supporting Game4Ukraine within the Metaverse and be able to bring the fan experience to viewers across the globe. We’re going to have some big names join us before and after the game so it’s not one to miss.”
