LONDON, October 5 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian soccer team Rostov arrived at London's Heathrow airport on Tuesday night in order to play a charity match against the team of the city-port of Portsmouth on Wednesday.
All proceeds from the match will be referred to a fund of support for the families of the Yaroslavl ice-hockey team Lokomotiv who had died in the crash of a Yak-42 airliner, carrying the team, near Yaroslavl on September 7.
Sergei Balakhnin, chief coach of the Rostov team, has told Itar-Tass, "The Rostov soccer club wholeheartedly responded to the offer made by our English counterparts to play a friendly match, with all proceeds from the sale of tickets to be remitted to the families of all air crash victims. The air crash did not leave anyone indifferent either in Russia, or, as you can see, in other countries, too. It is fine that we have got an opportunity to help the relatives and next-of-kin of the Lokomotiv ice hockey team members and and the air crew members".
The match between Rostov and Portsmouth will commence at Portsmouth stadium Fratton Park at 19:30 GMT on Wednesday.
