EFL clubs to pay tribute to victims of earthquake disaster in Turkey and Syria

The whole world has been moved by the heart-breaking scenes witnessed in Turkey and Syria after a tragic earthquake hit both countries in the early hours of Monday morning.


Over 21,500 people have been reported to have lost their lives and thousands more injured, and the thoughts of all at Luton Town Football Club are with everyone affected by the tragedy.

Through the EFL's official charity partnership with the British Red Cross, the league is supporting the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Appeal to help those impacted by the devastating earthquake.

To help raise awareness and as a mark of respect to those who have tragically lost their lives, Luton Town and Coventry City players - along with all other EFL clubs at their fixtures this weekend - will wear black armbands and hold a minute’s silence before kick-off at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
