FC Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov decided to provide financial assistance to clubs and children's football projects

These days, Ukraine is going through hard times. The war against Russia for our independence, for our cities and towns, for our people, children, and for our future has been lasting for over three months. The war is going on at several fronts at once: the military, economic, information, diplomatic ones. In this difficult time, it is important to be united, to trust and help each other.

FC Shakhtar welcomes the intention of the UAF and the Premier League clubs to hold the next Ukrainian Championship. Due to the difficult economic situation in the country, not everyone can fully prepare for the league campaign. In this regard, the club president Rinat Akhmetov decided to support the Ukrainian Championship, the clubs of the First and Second Leagues, and children's football projects by granting UAH 60 million.

The solidarity principle is a foundation of European football. We are confident that by helping others, we just become stronger and make our big friendly football family more united. Together we will win!
