The Harvard men's soccer team will host the Men's National Team of Haiti on Sunday April 10 to benefit Partners In Health relief efforts in Haiti.
The Haiti National Team is traveling to New England for a five-day benefit tour, taking on Dartmouth on April 8 before heading to Cambridge for a 5 pm game at historic Harvard Stadium.
Haiti is currently the 99th ranked team in the world out of the 202 FIFA nations.
"We are thrilled to host our friends from Haiti," said head coach Carl Junot. "Together with Partners In Health and the administration at Dartmouth, we hope that this extended weekend of games will be a large benefit to Partners In Health's work in Haiti."

Tickets to the game for the general public will be $10. Admission for the game will be free to Harvard undergraduates, but donations will be accepted for this worthy cause will all the proceeds going to Partners In Health.
