ARSENAL XI AT UNDERHILL THIS SUNDAY

20 June 2013

Mo Farah to manage Arsenal Legends team in charity match at Underhill

Underhill will host a charity football match this Sunday 23rd June when an Arsenal Legends XI, managed by Olympic double gold medallist Mo Farah, take on a World Refugee XI, managed by Fabrice Muamba.

Organised by ex-Arsenal captain Tony Adams and TV & radio personality Tom Watt, the match takes place at the end of World Refugee Week and is in aid of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees with all proceeds going directly to the charity.

Ian Wright, Nigel Winterburn, Ray Parlour, Lauren, Michael Thomas, Paul Davis, David Hillier and Perry Groves are just some of the star names taking part.

Premier League referee Mark Halsey will be the man in the middle with former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Steve Hodge playing alongside Dean Holdsworth and Fitzroy Simpson for the World Refugee IDP XI. 

Kick-off is at 4pm and gates open at 2pm. Tickets cost just £3 and under-12s get free admission. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here or you can pay at the turnstiles on the day.

We look forward to a big turnout at Underhill to support this fantastic cause!
