The 10 kuna gate fee went to support the cause.

The match, which saw the North selection run out winners, also served as a trial match for the Croatian national team selectors who would name the Croatia squad for their upcoming matches against Switzerland in Split (2.11) and Malta way (9.11) after the match.
