FIFA has decided to donate financial aid of $250,000 USD to the families of the victims of last week’s tragedy in Port Said (Egypt) following the football match between Al Masry and Al Ahly.

This sum will be paid into the charity account opened by Al Ahly last Sunday.

“I stated after the tragedy that this day was a black day for football. I’m still very shocked by what happened. Many of the victims were so young. They were also a crucial support for their families, who now need help. The football community, including FIFA, must assist its Egyptian brothers and sisters,” said the FIFA President.
