Posted on May 24, 2016

Sellebrity Soccer, the charity football organisation, is raising money for the Great Britain Men’s and Women’s Deaf Football teams, with a celebrity game being hosted by Doncaster Rovers on 29th May.

Kevin Cooper, ex AFC Wimbledon record goal scorer and cofounder of Sellebrity Soccer, speaks about the importance of supporting GBs Deaf Football:

“We’ve helped so many worthwhile charities over the years and raised thousands of pounds for them. Now we’re bringing it back to football and it means a lot to be helping GB get to Italy for the 2016 Deaf World Cup.” “They need to raise £25,000, so we’re looking for a great turn out to this event. It looks set to be an exciting match for everyone who attends and there’s always a chance to meet the celebrities afterwards.”

Tickets are available to buy from the Doncaster Rovers Ticket office or online at http://www.keepmoatstadium.talent-sport.co.uk/. The price is £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and £35 for VIP meet-and-greet tickets. Kick-off will be at 2.30pm.
