England FA kit donated to Ukraine

“Knowing Christ is the best thing that has ever happened to me, although winning the US Open was a pretty good second.”

Alison Nicholas

Ukraine project

Verite Sport has had the partnership with Standard and Zhenya Dontsov in Ukraine for 14 years and Stuart has visited Ukraine six times. The most recent project was to help Zhenya acquire and develop a new sports facility for his football academy in Rivne, Western Ukraine. Previously we have facilitated an English FA coaching course to train local coaches, we have sponsored the publication of the book Born to Play in Ukrainian and have sent FA surplus kit for distribution in Ukraine.

At this time of tragedy for the country, we have put together a set of photographs showing how we have worked together with Zhenya.
