The match is the second time that Haiti will play a current World Cup champion. The Haitian roster will include top players such as Jhony Placide, Jeff Louis, Jean Jacque Pierre, Jean Sony Alcenat, and Reginal Goreux.

June’s match will directly support the Haitian community by not only donating one dollar per ticket sold to help construct a national team stadium in Cité Soleil, Haiti but also develop a surrounding community center.
