Chelsea will face the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on May 15, Chelsea announced on Monday. The match is a charitable exhibition, with proceeds going towards organizations fighting discrimination and inequality.
Both team’s owners, Chelsea’s Roman Abramovich and New England’s Robert Kraft will each donate $1 million to the cause as well. Money raised from the match will go to the World Jewish Congress, the Tree of Life synagogue, the Anti-Defamation League and the Holocaust Educational Trust.
The idea for the match came about after the tragedy in Pittsburgh in which 11 people were killed and others injured during a terrorist attack at the Tree of Life synagogue. Both Kraft and Abramovich are Jewish.
