Dynamo Kyiv plans Barcelona and PSG friendlies to raise funds for Ukraine


Defending Ukrainian champions Dynamo Kyiv said on Friday they planned to play a series of friendlies, including against PSG and Barcelona, ​​to raise money for their war-torn nation.

The Ukrainian championship did not resume after the winter break due to the Russian invasion of the country which began on February 24.

The future of the season is in question as top club infrastructure has been damaged or threatened by Russian bombing and foreign players are leaving Ukrainian teams.

“Thanks to the support of the leaders of our state, Dynamo embodies an international charitable mission – a series of friendly matches with the best European clubs,” Dynamo said on its website.

The club said that in April-June they “plan to play friendlies” with Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain, Steaua Bucharest, Legia Warsaw and Barcelona.

Dynamo added that Milan, Benfica, Ajax, Sporting Lisbon and Basel were also on the list.

“All these matches with the participation of the Ukrainian champions will take place under the slogan “Match for peace! Stop the war! Dynamo said in its statement.

He said the matches were aimed at “informing the international community about the terrible war in Ukraine and raising funds to support Ukrainians who suffered in the war with the Russian aggressor”.
