FA and England team will reimburse ticket costs of fans who stayed in Warsaw for Poland re-run
The England team and The FA have today announced they will reimburse the ticket money of those fans who stayed in Warsaw to watch the postponed Poland v England match.
The England Footballers Foundation (EFF) and FA have agreed to cover the costs of refunding the ticket price for every fan attending the rearranged game at the Polish National Stadium.
This follows confirmation from the Polish Federation
that they will set up a refund process for those fans who were unable to attend the re-arranged game.
In addition, The FA and players will invite ALL the 2,500 fans who bought tickets and travelled to this match to a special England training session at Wembley Stadium or St George’s Park before the end of the season.
The FA and its official supporters group englandfans
have coordinated these arrangements and been in constant communication with all members since last night’s match was called off.
England captain Steven Gerrard said: “The team really appreciate the support we receive away from home. We know that fans have spent money and taken time off work to travel to Poland and we don’t take it for granted. The supporters have the complete respect of the whole squad.”
The match last night was called off by FIFA after a referee’s inspection deemed the pitch unfit to play. The players were kept in the dressing room during this time and so were unable to acknowledge the England fans waiting in the stadium.
The players donate all their England match fees to charity, through the England Footballers’ Foundation (EFF) which has raised over £2.5 million since it’s inception in 2007.
