CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After the Harvard men’s soccer team hosted the Haiti National Team in April in a fundraiser to benefit Partners in Health relief efforts in Haiti and the Haitian Football association, Harvard Athletics, the Friends of Harvard Soccer and the Ted Ashford Foundation made a total donation of $16,000.

Harvard also teamed with Dartmouth to cover all expenses and travel costs for the Haitian team during its trip to the United States. The Haitian squad traveled to New England for a five-day tour and played a contest at Dartmouth before taking on the Crimson.
The Crimson hosted the Haitian National Team Harvard Stadium April 10. The teams played to a 0-0 tie before Haiti won in penalty kicks, 4-1. Two days earlier, Haiti earned a 2-1 win against Dartmouth in Hanover, N.H.
Harvard provided a free video stream of the game between the Crimson and Haiti in both English and Creole. Nearly 1,900 unique viewers watched the video broadcast, resulting in 64,640 minutes of content.
