Donate blood with AS Monaco

AS Monaco has teamed up with the Princess Grace Hospital to organise a blood drive this weekend. Before the thrill of the game, spectators will be able to feel the exhilaration of donating life-saving blood.

The football club launched the initiative early this week in collaboration with the CHPG. Ahead of the Monaco vs Reims game on Saturday 13th April, a CHPG truck will be stationed at the main entrance of the Louis II Stadium, next to the AS Monaco shop truck, to allow people to donate blood between the hours of 4pm and 8pm.

On Monday, AS Monaco head coach Leonardo Jardim showed his support by donating blood at the newly renovated blood transfusion centre at the CHPG.

“I have already donated blood several times in the past,” said Jardim. “It is a nice initiative of the club and it’s good that people can donate blood. It’s important to help people who need it today and in the future.”

Dr. Anne Gouverner-Valla, from the blood transfusion centre, was happy to welcome Leonardo Jardim to the hospital. “It is a great honour to receive Leonardo Jardim today. It is very important for us to associate blood donation with sport. I hope this will help us to mobilise as many donors as possible, and I hope that many people will come to support AS Monaco on Saturday and give their blood before the match.”

Every year 5,000 donations of blood are needed for the 800 patients transfused in the Principality.
