Prague, Aug 24 (CTK) - The Czech Football Association (FACR) will earmark a part of the tickets for the upcoming Czech Republic vs Germany world football cup qualifier in support of the family of the Czech woman whom an Egyptian attacker fatally stabbed on a beach in Egypt in July and who was the FACR's chief accountant.

The match will be played in Prague on September 1.

Repka, the FACR's general secretary, said all in the FACR were shattered by the death of their colleague, and they want to provide financial support to her family in its hard time.

In support of the family, the FACR has reserved the sector 118 with the capacity of 750 seats in Prague's Eden stadium where the match will be played.

People may buy tickets to this sector for 1000 crowns apiece at least, but the buyers may raise the sum according to their own consideration.

The sum collected for these tickets will be gathered on a transparent account and eventually handed over to the family.

The 36-year-old woman, a mother of a son, died in late July, some two weeks after the attack of the assailant, who also killed two German women and wounded several other women on a beach near Hurghada.

The Czech Foreign Ministry has called on Egypt to provide compensation to the Czech victim's family, but has shown reluctance in this respect.
