Reds v Blues this weekend!

28 June 2016


Following on from the huge successes over the past number of years, Reds v Blues returns this weekend!

The match, involving fans, celebrities and ex-professionals will be staged on Saturday 2 July (3pm) at the Jubilee Sports and Social Club, in aid of Hallam FM Cash for Kids and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.

But there is much more to the day than just the game!

The gates open at 11.00am and there will be entertainment in the form of special performances, guest appearances, fairground rides, football tournaments, live music, raffle prizes and much more!

In its early days, the charity event saw fans get together once a year to play against each other with the aim to raise money and awareness for Sheffield charities.



The event began to gather real pace from 2011 when over £400 was raised for the Sheffield Children’ Hospital at Hillsborough Arena.

In 2013, the match grew bigger still and incredibly raised over £3,000 for Weston Park Hospitals.



Since then, over £1,500 has been raised for St Luke’s Hospice and £1,800 for Cavendish Cancer Care and the SWFC Community Programme.

Players lined up in the Blues’ squad this time around include the likes of Matt Hamshaw, Miguel Llera and Yoann Folly.

And for the Reds, expect to see the likes of Derek Geary, Darren Bullock, David Holdsworth and cyclist Chris Pritchard.

Entry fee is a minimum £1 donation.

Good luck to everyone involved and see you there!
