The Ukrainian Football Association created an installation in the center of Munich on the eve of the first match of the Ukrainian national team against Romania at Euro-2024. The object should draw attention to the war in Ukraine.

In Munich, Germany, on the eve of the start of the Ukrainian national team at Euro-2024, the stand of Kharkiv's “Sonyachny” stadium, which was damaged as a result of Russian shelling in 2022, was installed This is reported by Zorya Londonsk and The Guardian.

The stadium was built for the 2012 European Championship, which Ukraine hosted together with Poland, but was destroyed as a result of Russian missile attacks in May 2022.

< p>The tribune will also be located in at least two other cities, Dusseldorf and Stuttgart, where Ukraine will play Euro 2024 group stage matches. The UAF said that the installation is proof that sports and football in particular also suffer from the war.

The Ukrainian Football Association took the tribune across Europe to testify to the world that football is not outside by war After all, more than 500 sports facilities were damaged by Russian bombings and missile strikes, – the UAF wrote.

The Dutch team trained at this stadium during the tournament. “Sonyachny” also hosted the final of the Women's Cup of Ukraine in the 2019-2020 season and served as a venue for the men's national team.
