The health crisis is not over, but neither is our solidarity. For the 3rd matchday of Ligue 1, the Professional Football League has chosen the match between AS Monaco and Nantes, to thank caregivers for their hard work since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The governing body of French football, which has recorded the various efforts of clubs during the health crisis, has announced that more than three million euros in donations have been collected for healthcare workers and people in precarious situations.
The CHPG and the Monegasque Red Cross in the spotlight
Donations to which must be added the many solidarity initiatives put on by the players coaches, supporters and footballing authorities. This is also without forgetting those done by AS Monacoeur, which will particularly mobilized for this match between AS Monaco and Nantes. The charity has decided to invite all the volunteers of the Monaco Red Cross who have worked during the health crisis as well as the staff of the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace of Monaco (CHPG), to attend the match.
Banners in tribute to caregivers will also be displayed in the Stade Louis-II. Thank you messages will also be broadcast before the match, with a few surprises in store. Finally, the jersey that the Rouge et Blancs will wear will display “MERCI” on the chest, once again to salute the hard work of healthcare workers since the start of the health crisis.
