FC Barcelona said Saturday it will play a team comprising Israeli and Palestinian players in a fund-raising game aimed at supporting efforts at peace between the countries.
The "Match for Peace" will be held at Camp Nou stadium on Nov. 29, a day after the end of the summit in Barcelona between European Union heads of state or government and leaders of countries on the Mediterranean's southern rim.
Proceeds from the game, in which the Israeli-Palestinian side will play under the name of the Peace Team, will provide support for children in the zone.
