GRASSHOPPERS SUPPORT SPORTS AID SWITZERLAND
Last season, Grasshopper Club Zürich once again collected donations with the Sporthilfe-Franken. This raised 8,945 Swiss francs, which will benefit young Swiss sports talent.
Grasshopper Club Zurich has been a partner of the Swiss Sports Aid Foundation since 2007. With the Sporthilfe-Franken, the club offers its fans the opportunity to donate the amount of one franc with a ticket purchase in the online store. In the 2021/22 season, this raised 8,945 francs, which flow directly into the Swiss Sports Aid foundation. With this support, the foundation supports young athletes on their way to the top of the global sporting elite in a targeted and sustainable manner - so that no Swiss sporting talent fails to overcome the financial hurdle.
Grasshopper Club Zürich is delighted that a considerable amount was once again donated during the past season and would like to express its sincere thanks to its fans for their valuable contribution. With this commitment, which has also been renewed for the current season, GC underlines that it not only cares about young footballers, but more generally about the Swiss sports stars of tomorrow.
"We are very grateful to Grasshopper Club Zürich for the long-standing partnership. Together with its spectators, Grasshopper Club Zurich is the only football club in Switzerland which supports more than 1,000 Swiss athletes from over 80 sports through the Sporthilfe-Franken partnership," said Steve Schennach, CEO of the Swiss Sports Aid Foundation.
