Tiny Tim and Jay Kontzle are among the latest stars added to the celebrity charity match taking place at the LNER Stadium on Sunday 23 October (KO 3pm).

Tiny Tim has gained almost one million subscribers and amassed more than 125 million views from his comedy videos on YouTube, where he prank calls people in a high-pitched voice.

Kontzle is most recognisably known for playing Billy Fletcher in ITV’s Emmerdale and has been in this role since December 2018.

The two new celebrities will join iconic former City player Gareth Ainsworth who will pull on the famous red and white stripes again to raise money for the club's Foundation as part of the match.

Ainsworth, who was voted Player Of The Season in both campaigns, featured for the Imps in the 90s, made more than 80 appearances in that time and scored close to 40 goals helping City to promotion in 1996/97.

The former Imps who are also set to be involved in the game include Simon Yeo, Terry Fleming, Paul Miller, Paul Mayo and Gavin Gordon.

Additional celebrities participating in the charity football game include model Calum Best, former Eastenders actor Dean Gaffney, Britain’s Got Talent 2022 finalist Flintz, TV chef Dean Edwards and Bad Education star Charlie Wernham.

Kick-off is at 3pm on Sunday 23 October, but fans can enjoy the buzz of the stadium with the University of Lincoln Fan Village - open from 1pm.

Tickets cost £10 for adults, £5 for U16s and OAPs and £40 for VIPs, which includes a meet and greet. A booking fee also applies. Executive boxes, which can house up to 10 people, are £100.

All tickets can be purchased from the Imps’ ticketing website HERE. You can also contact the ticket office team via 01522 458884, or tickets@theredimps.com.
