Revolut, the global financial super app with more than 30 million customers worldwide, has partnered with the charity match Game4Ukraine, which will take place on August 5th at Stamford Bridge Stadium in London. Two teams lineup, captained by 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 the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and the 4 hour 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.

“As a British-Ukrainian citizen, I thank everyone for the ongoing support and I invite you to join Revolut and Game4Ukraine in helping those who need it most right now. Let’s come together to rebuild Ukraine”, said Vlad Yatsenko, co-founder and CTO at Revolut.
“We’re delighted to bring people together with football and a global partner that has done so much work to help the people of Ukraine. We really hope this will be a day to remember for everyone, united in looking towards a better future”, said Andriy Shevchenko.

Revolut’s partnership builds upon the existing work it has done with a range of charities to make a real difference to the lives of Ukrainian people in need. In the first month of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Revolut customers raised more than €10 million through a charity appeal to help those impacted. More than 300,000 customers across 50 countries had donated to the appeal that month, with the funds going to the Red Cross Ukraine appeal.
To further support the cause, in 2023 Revolut added a dedicated charity appeal for victims of the Kakhovka Dam disaster. This fundraise was led by British-Ukrainian Aid, the charity makes direct contact with those in need on the ground, assesses what people need and provides immediate help for emergency and relief operations.
Tickets for the match are available on the official Game4Ukraine website.
