FH’ers to contribute to Japan relief effort through a bit of friendly sport

Now that many of the European domestic leagues have drawn to a close, some fans may be enjoying a bit of football respite. But for those who crave a little more there is a chance to combine an entertaining football match with supporting a good cause.

Sweden FC, a Brussels based amateur team that includes some current and former FH’ers, together with the Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU and the Mission of Japan, will stage a special exhibition match on 18 June to raise money for the victims of Japan’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.

The match, with kick off scheduled for 14.30 at the Stade Communal d’Ixelles, will pit Sweden FC Brussels against a Japanese team; attendees will be able to donate money and all contributions going to the Japanese Red Cross.

We hope to see as many of you there as possible for an afternoon of fun!
