Athletes from England’s team have decided to donate the prize money they received for their participation in the Euro to the UK’s public health service, the National Health Service (NHS), which has been crucial in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic in the country. In the final, England will face Italy.
The values, even in the case of second place, are not small. The group of European champions will receive 9.6 million pounds (70.1 million Brazilian riyals) to divide it among 26 athletes, while the runners-up will receive 8.5 million pounds (62.1 million Brazilian riyals). The federation of the winning country will receive 24 million pounds (175 million Brazilian riyals).
– After positive discussions with the Football Association, top players are pleased to confirm that a large donation from international matches will be made to NHS Charities Together through the Players Together initiative. In an official statement, the players said that this contribution will be taken from a fund that has already been set aside to support a variety of social causes using all funds received from games since September 2018.
Players Together is a charitable fund for players in England, set up last year on the initiative of Jordan Henderson, captain of Liverpool and one of the players of the national team.
The European Cup final will take place next Sunday, at 4 pm, at the historic Wembley Stadium in London. England came to the decision after beating Denmark in extra time, while Italy tied Spain to win on penalties.
