The BGV charity fund, in collaboration with the "Polissia" football club, aims to fulfill the specific needs of soldiers of Ukraine's armed forces.

BGV charity fund reports this.

What is the problem?

A full-scale war has been going on in Ukraine for two years now. Both allies and Ukrainians assist the armed forces.

"Polissia" football club, together with the BGV charitable fund since the beginning of the full-scale invasion within the framework of joint projects, also constantly assists and meets the needs of the Ukrainian military.

For example, in September 2023, they collected 400,000 hryvnias for the purchase of training equipment for the training of the "Burevii" brigade, which is part of the National Guard of Ukraine.

Also, thanks to the support of FC "Polissia" fans, the BGV charity fund donated UAH 400,000 to help the National Guard of Ukraine.

What is the solution?

The goal of the BGV charity fund, partnered with the "Polissia" football club, is to meet the specific needs of soldiers serving in Ukraine's armed forces.

How does it work?

On March 9, fund and football club representatives presented the soldiers with the first symbolic check of UAH 325,606 at the stadium in Zhytomyr.

The permanent sports partner of the BGV charity fund – the team of the "Polissia" football club – will transfer all funds received from the sale of tickets for home matches of the season that has begun, up to and including May 31, 2024, to close the military's targeted requests.

The first transferred amount was UAH 325,606 — for a game with Cherkasy LNZ football club. The BGV charity fund will use all the transferred funds to purchase a defense system and a reconnaissance drone for the 132nd separate reconnaissance battalion of the Airborne Assault Troops of Ukraine's armed forces.

For reference:

Zhytomyr football club "Polissia" presented a new female team uniform.

It was also reported that Zhytomyr fans returned to the stands for the first time since the full-scale invasion began on 1 March 2024 to show their support for the team at the 19th-round match of the Ukrainian Premier League against Cherkasy LNZ. After 19 and a half years, fans finally entered the stadium through the central entrance on Stariy Boulevard.

In addition, Rubryka reported that the final tournament of the first e-Football Open Cup in Zhytomyr, which concluded the "Electronic Football Festival" project, was organized by the "Polissia" football club and the "Electronic Sports League" Public Union with the support of the Commission of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine of eSports, took place on February 4 in the territory of the indomitable fan zone of FC "Polissia."
