For a good cause! The European League of Football, in person of Patrick Esume, met with the German Red Cross e. V. last week to discuss future aid during the cold winter season. They took the opportunity to hand over clothing donations from the past merchandise inventory - that did not meet the standards - to be given to people in need. At the DRK regional association in Hamburg-Lokstedt, there was a lively conversation between Markus Tieseler, Deputy Chairman of the DRK Landesverband Hamburg e. V., Thomas Tröbs, Head of Logistics at the DRK Landesverband, and the league leadership.

"It's winter, it's cold and there are people who need warm clothes right now. We at the European League of Football are trying to use our reach for good causes and are calling on people to find a charity of their choice and support it. We all have too many clothes. It's close to Christmas, do something good," European League of Football Commissioner Patrick Esume explained.

The franchises in five different European countries are also calling for support.
