The Brüning Group, or respectively Arnd Brüning, has donated a set of jerseys with a very special message for the 1st men’s football team of the TSV Fischerhude/Quelkhorn. On Sunday, 07.08.2022, the men’s team kicked off the season in the special jerseys for a one-off match against the SV Komet Pennigbüttel from the district of Osterholz-Scharmbeck.

The jerseys in the colours of Ukraine are printed with a large peace sign, the hashtag #standwithukraine and “STOP WAR”, which gives them an extraordinary appeal. After the match on 18.09.2022 against the FC Worpswede, the jerseys will be auctioned off at the TSV sports ground for a good cause, arranged by the club’s own supporting association “Charity Play”. The money raised will be used to provide urgently needed aid for people in Ukraine. They will go to the organisation “We Care Otter”, which organises weekly aid transports to Ukraine. The money is used to purchase important items such as medicines, which are delivered to the front line.

“All those involved are once again making a clear statement about the current events in Ukraine. We want to express our solidarity with the people in Ukraine and also with those who had to leave their country,” explains Matthias Warnke, coach of the district league football team and head of the Waste Wood and Waste-to-Energy national units at the Brüning Group. Visibly moved and almost a little proud, he adds: “A great idea by Arnd and a unique initiative in amateur sport in our region.
