Harvard Men’s Soccer to Host Haitian National Team April 10

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — The Harvard men's soccer team will host the Men's National Team of Haiti on Sunday, April 10 to benefit Partners in Health relief efforts in Haiti.

The Haiti National Team is traveling to New England for a five-day benefit tour, taking on Dartmouth on April 8 before heading to Cambridge for a 5 p.m. game at historic Harvard Stadium.

Haiti is currently the 99th ranked team in the world out of the 202 FIFA nations.

"We are thrilled to host our friends from Haiti," said head coach Carl Junot. "Together with Partners in Health and the administration at Dartmouth, we hope that this extended weekend of games will be a large benefit to Partner's In Health's work in Haiti."

The events at both Dartmouth and Harvard will raise money to support Partners in Health and its relief efforts in Haiti, which is still recovering from a catastrophic 7.0 M earthquake that struck on Jan. 12, 2010.

Ticket to the game for the general public will be $10. Admission for the game will be free to Harvard undergraduates, but donations will be accepted for this worthy cause with all the proceeds going to Partners in Health. Check back at GoCrimson.com for more details on the event as it nears.

Almost a year ago, the Harvard University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee successfully coordinated a "Harvard For Haiti Campaign" that raised over $5,000 in donations and contributions on Feb. 19, 2010.

The SAAC collected donations at men's basketball and ice hockey games with student-athletes, dressed in vintage game apparel, passing through the stands with size-18 sneakers and zie-14 ice skates. Additionally, the Department of Harvard Athletics donated all parking proceeds from the night which included events for basketball, ice hockey, men's lacrosse and MIAA Swim Championships at Blodgett Pool.

"After the earthquake in Haiti, there were many student-athletes who wanted to help out, but weren't sure how to do so. With the help of the athletic department, SAAC was able to collect money for Haiti relief," said former SAAC president and current Harvard Varsity Club Assistant Director Melissa Schellberg. "I was so impressed at how willing Harvard basketball and hockey spectators were to give to such a great cause. It's inspiring for all of us who wear Crimson, fans and athletes alike, knowing that we are helping out in every way we can."
