Paris Saint-Germain are helping relieve hospital workers in Paris currently dealing with the Coronavirus outbreak by releasing a special-edition version of their home jersey, known as “TOUS UNIS” (All Together).
The shirt – which has now sold-out – has raised money for healthcare staff from Paris hospitals, with 1500 limited-edition jerseys created using a special design that removes the ALL (Accor Live Limitless) sponsor replaced by the words “Tous Unis”, which translates as “All Together”. The logo of Assistance Publique (Paris Hospitals (AP-HP), the Greater Paris University Hospitals and 100,000 healthcare staff) also appears on the right sleeve.
“Faced with the crisis we are going through, Paris Saint-Germain is taking action alongside its partners and supporters,” explained Nasser Al-Khelaifi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Paris Saint-Germain. “We cannot be grateful enough for the tremendous and courageous work that healthcare staff are doing every day to deal with this emergency. These extraordinary women and men are an example to us all. The struggle will be long, and the Club would like to help them with what they need most of all: to rest, eat and share a few moments of comfort with their loved ones. Just like the millions of French people who give them their warmest applause every evening at 8 p.m., we are all together with them and we will be just as together when this crisis is behind us all. This special jersey is a first commitment to the staff of Assistance Publique – Paris Hospitals, and further planned initiatives will be announced shortly.”
The shirts have now completely sold out in 12 hours, raising over €200,000 for AP-HP. Get a closer look at the special-edition jerseys below.
