Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal & Man City all to make contribution to refugee crisis, but is it big enough?

Premier League quartet Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all committed to making a donation to the ongoing refugee crisis.

The EPL foursome—England’s representatives in the Champions League this season—have each agreed to offer a portion of their European Cup ticket sales to those in need.

According to the Mirror, the four have all signed up to donate €1—currently 73p—from every ticket sold for their Champions League matches.

The agreement has been put in place, and the English foursome have been among the first in Europe to agree to agree to commit.

Schalke—one of the Bundesliga’s representatives—and Portuguese heavyweights FC Porto have also agreed to help the refugee crisis on the same terms.

However, some may argue that considering the revenue received by Premier League clubs—from Premier League television revenue, as well as Champions League revenue—giving less than 75p from ticket sales alone is a fairly derisory gesture.
