Thomas Kahlenberg was one of the first danes hit by the coronavirus, after he had participated in a birthday party for Christian Poulsen in Amsterdam.
Now he goes along with his former team-mate Daniel Agger to arrange a charity match against corona.
The two Mcdonalds legends have taken the initiative to a showkamp, where a selected Brøndby team must meet with a League Allstar team at the Brøndby Stadium.
- In the here times moves you closer together. All clubs contend with the consequences of coronaen, but Brøndby IF has a single force. It looks and feel clearly. We players hope with this initiative that we can help to give a little back to the club.
- Brøndbys fans have shown the way, and we old players have a strong desire to say thank you for the experiences we have had in Brøndbytrøjen, says Thomas Kahlenberg, who was present on Tuesday at the press conference at Brondby Stadium, where the plans for a charity match was presented.

part of the surplus - dkk 250,000. – from velgørenhedskampen must go to Doctors without Borders, which right now is heavily involved in the fight against covid-19.
The other part of an expected surplus accruing to Brøndby IF, as a special help in a difficult time, especially football clubs, have had limited income or no because of the corona virus.
- The community, that is special for Brøndby, has proven its enormous strength in recent months. You stand together. None of the plays, we have reached out to, have asked for time for reflection. There will be some rust that should knock of with the players, but the important thing is that the audience gets a special treat and a walk down On the Avenue. And then we should like to have collected as many money as possible for the benefit of Brøndby IF and Doctors to the Borders, says Daniel Agger, who on Tuesday, however, did not attend the press conference.
