Liverpool to donate match-worn shirts to Ukraine Crisis Appeal

Liverpool will donate all shirts worn in their 2-1 win over Norwich on Wednesday night in the FA Cup in support of the British Red Cross Ukraine crisis appeal.

The emergency fund was created to support people affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

All shirts will be signed by the players before being auctioned off by the LFC Foundation, with the aim of raising funds to help the people of Ukraine access food, water and clothing.

This is in response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, which drew worldwide condemnation.

Another symbol of solidarity with Ukraine, the main stand at Anfield was lit up in blue and yellow, the color of the Ukrainian national flag, during last night’s game against the Canaries.

The Premier League have also revealed their intention to stand alongside Ukraine from this weekend’s matches.

In a statement, the league revealed that all captains will wear special armbands in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. Large screens in the stadiums will display “Football stands together” against a backdrop of blue and yellow colors of the Ukrainian flag.

In last night’s game at Anfield, Takumi Minamino scored a brace for Jurgen Klopp’s side, along with Lukas Rupp
