During today’s lunchtime kickoff in the Barclays Premier League, Brighton have opted to wear their yellow and blue 2021-22 third kit at home to Liverpool as a show of support to Ukraine.
The club have raised more than £10,000 for the Ukraine Crisis Appeal as a result of supporters buying the yellow and blue third shirt over the past week.
With both the men’s and women’s first teams fixtures being shown live on tv this weekend, both teams will wear the yellow and blue third kit, the colours of the Ukraine flag.
Deputy chairman and chief executive Paul Barber said, “We continue to be horrified by the events in Ukraine and wish to show our support for all those affected. We reiterate the many calls for peace.
“We were proud to wear yellow and blue in both matches last weekend, and felt the gesture of changing the colours for our home fixtures this weekend would further amplify the message and continue to show our solidarity with all those suffering as a result of this terrible conflict.”
All profits from the Brighton 2021-22 third shirt sales will be donated to the British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal.
