JNS.org – The New England Revolution and Chelsea FC soccer teams will play in a friendly match on Wednesday evening titled the “Final Whistle on Hate” to raise awareness about hate crimes worldwide, especially antisemitic ones.

The game’s proceeds will be donated to 15 groups, including the Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Agency for Israel, the World Jewish Congress and Community Security Trust.

Additionally, Revolution owner Bob Kraft and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich will each give $1 million to back the mission.

Earlier this month, representatives from both clubs traveled to Poland to participate in the International March of the Living, held on Holocaust Remembrance Day.
