Support the Charity Cup on Saturday

20 March 2019

The Charity Cup returns to Hillsborough this weekend raising funds for St Luke’s Hospice and the Sheffield Wednesday Community Programme.

The annual event sees two Wednesday sides, one in the Owls home kit and the other in the away, battle it out for the trophy.

As Wednesday are without a fixture due to the international break, it’s the perfect opportunity to watch some football whilst supporting two great local charities.

The match kicks off at 1.00pm on Saturday 23 March at Hillsborough, with supporters welcome to enter free of charge from 12.00pm, a raffle is also taking place to raise funds for the charities.

The players taking part have spent the last few months raising over £450 each for the charities, and now they have the chance to play on the hallowed Hillsborough turf.

Managers for the day John Beresford and Mel Sterland will be donning the Owls touchline, with a number of local celebrities taking part on the field.

Supporters can gain entry to the game through the South Stand main reception only.

Last year’s match was a thriller, with the away side coming out 5-4 winners!

More importantly, the event raised over £12,000 for the charities thanks to the generosity of the players and supporters.

John Pearson, charity events co-ordinator at SWFCCP, said: “We’re very much looking forward to Saturday’s Charity Cup.

“The last few years have all been great successes and we would love for as many as people as possible to come down and support the event again this year.

“We hope you will join us for a brilliant day.”
