Posted on: 10 May 2022

Steps’ Lee Latchford Evans and Eastenders actor Jake Wood are among the famous faces dusting off their shooting boots.

 

Later this month, television stars and Bristol City legends will join together to play a charity football match to raise money for Chloë’s Fight with Ewing’s.

 

Taking place at Ashton Gate on Sunday 15 May, the game will be raising money for Chloë, whose life was turned upside down in 2018 when she was given the terrible news that she had cancer at just 15 years old.

 

Tickets for the event are £15 (plus the booking fee) with VIP Hospitality tickets available for just £40. Head to the Ashton Gate website to grab yours now.

 

 

Celebrities confirmed to take part so far include Youtube comedian Yung Filly, singer and Coronation Street star Shayne Ward, Martyn Ford of Fast and Furious 9, Tom Malone of Gogglebox and TV chef Dean Edwards among others.

 

Spectators can also expect some fancy footwork from football freestylers Billy Wingrove and Jeremy Lynch of F2, as well as Bristol City legends Lee Trundle and Louis Carey, and current Robins kitman Scott Murray (pictured below).

 

These household names are coming together to raise money for Chloë’s Fight with Ewing’s, a charity raising vital funds for life-saving research into Ewing sarcoma. Visit the Bone Cancer Research Trust page to find out more.

Speaking ahead of the match at Ashton Gate, Sellebrity Soccer co-founder Kevin Cooper has said: “We are very excited to bring Sellebrity Soccer to Ashton Gate Stadium for the third year and bring back that much-needed feelgood factor and a great family day out. 

 

“We always have amazing support from the club and fans for the matches so once again, get behind what will be an amazing day in May 2022. See you there!”

 

On the day (Sunday 15 May), turnstiles will be open from 13:30 with pre-match build-up taking place before the 15:00 kick-off. Those with VIP tickets will be able to use the stadium lounge pre- and post-game and will have the opportunity to meet the stars after the match.

 

Head to the Ashton Gate website to secure your ticket and help raise vital funds for Chloë’s Fight with Ewing’s.
