A host of former City players are the latest to have been added to the celebrity charity match taking place at the LNER Stadium on Sunday 23 October.
The likes of Simon Yeo, Terry Fleming, Paul Miller, Paul Mayo and Gavin Gordon will face off against a glittering line-up of celebrity stars such as James Argent, Calum Best, Dan Osborne and Kristen Hanby.
Other celebrities participating in the charity football game include ITV 2’s Survival of the Fittest contestant Warren Phillips, Britain’s Got Talent 2022 finalist Flintz, TV chef Dean Edwards and Bad Education star, Charlie Wernham.
Martin Hickerton, chief executive of the Lincoln City Foundation, said: “We’re really grateful these high-profile people are taking time out to come and help raise money to help us support the physical, social and mental wellbeing of people in Lincolnshire.
“Our goal as a charity is to create healthier, happier and inspired communities - we believe we are achieving this through the match, in addition to creating a legacy with funding to allow us to continue our work in the local area.”
The game has been organised by Sellebrity Soccer, which was launched in 2012 to help charities raise money by arranging all-star football matches across the UK.
Sellebrity Soccer’s co-founder Kevin Cooper said: “We are proud to organise large-scale charity events that enable organisations to raise vital funds to help people in society.”
Kick off is at 3pm on Sunday October 23, but fans can enjoy the buzz of the stadium with the University of Lincoln Fan Village open from 1pm.
