About this informs Ukrainian Football Association.
The Ukraine-Italy match, which will be nominally a home match for Serhiy Rebrov’s team, will take place on November 20 at the BayArena stadium in Leverkusen, Germany.
At the request of the Ukrainian Football Association, the management of “Bayer” agreed to provide its stadium for the organization of this match.
“We are glad that we were able to send a message, however small, about our solidarity and support. For many Ukrainians who have currently found their second home in the Rhineland region, this game at BayArena is a great opportunity to directly support their home team. We hope to a peaceful and of course exciting celebration of football,” said Fernando Carro, CEO of Bayer Leverkusen
