“Aid, solidarity, love and unity are the only ways to fight in these challenging times that have down to us to fight the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus pandemic. And we are proud to succeed,” said Hajduk on its official website.

The action began with donations from Hajduk players and employees and was joined by numerous members of the Hajduk family – members of the Supervisory Board, former players and employees of the Club, supporters, sponsors, public figures and media professionals. Everyone paid as they could, so donations ranged from 10 kuna to 200,000 kuna, and Hajduk equally thanked everyone for their solidarity and great Hajduk heart.

A number of former club players of all generations responded to Hajduk’s call: Danijel Subasic, Mario Pasalic, Nikola Vlasic, Andrija Balic, Ante Palaversa, Anton Maglica, Domagoj Bradaric, Darijo Srna, Slaven Bilic, Ivica Surjak, Karlo Letica, Goran Milovic, Goran Vucevic, Mario Maloča, Nikola Jerkan, Zlatko Vujovic, Luksa Poklepovic and many others.

Numerous Hajduk supporters aided in the success of the action, and donations came from all over the world, from South America to Portugal and Germany, from individuals to the Friends of Hajduk and Torcida affiliates.

Former leaders of Hajduk also responded to the action – President Jasmin Huljaj, Vice President Luksa Jakobusic, Coach Damir Buric, Sports Director Sasa Bjelanovic, numerous public figures such as Mladen Grdovic, Gibonni, Jole, Tonci Huljic, Alen Nizetic and sponsors of the Spectrum travel and Apfar.

The total donation will be used to purchase medical devices and equipment that will be assembled by KBC Split according to their needs in the Intensive Care Unit of the Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology of the Split hospital, which serves the most severe coronavirus infected patients.

HNK Hajduk Split once again gives thanks to all the donors who have contributed to the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
