FC Bayern Legends donate €180k to #WeKickCorona

Postby FCBayernNews » Fri Jun 05, 2020 11:05 am

Bayern first-team duo Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich have demonstrated their community engagement with their #WeKickCorona charity project during the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. Since the launch of the initiative, around 3,700 donors have raised over €4.4 million for charitable causes and done their bit for the “health of society”, as the official #WeKickCorona website says.

Proceeds from last Legends match against Manchester United

Now the FC Bayern Legends team have also got involved in the campaign and donated €180,000 to #WeKickCorona. The sum comes from the proceeds of the Legends’ last match against Manchester United Legends, which took place in May 2019 at Old Trafford to mark the 20-year anniversary of the 1999 Champions League final.

Legends captain Matthäus hands over donation

“It’s a great thing that the guys are doing there and we want to do our little bit,” said Germany’s most-capped international Lothar Matthäus, who in his role as FC Bayern ambassador performed the handover in a digital chat with Goretzka. “I think that money has been put to good use and it shows how we legends work together with the current players.”

Goretzka was thrilled by the support: “We want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for that and also for the trust it shows. We’ll certainly find good projects for the money to go to.”

Sportspeople, artists and politicians supporting #WeKickCorona

#WeKickCorona was launched by Kimmich and Goretzka in mid-March and has been able to support nearly 400 projects since then. As well as FC Bayern Munich, who raised €250,000 from the sale of face masks, the initiative has also been supported by footballers, other sportspeople, artists and politicians.
