Everything You Need to Know About Selebrity Soccer

“Selebrity Soccer” is an organization that puts together large-scale football matches between celebrities to raise funds for different causes or charities. Since they were created, they raised over two million pounds for various purposes. The organization was launched in 2012 by Kevin Cooper and Darren Eadie. They organize games for small stadiums and also Premier League stadiums. Currently, they only arrange matches in the U.K., but if they continue to grow, they can start to organize these types of events worldwide. The tickets for these games don’t cost as much as tickets for the regular football season. You can buy a ticket for £10 per adult or £5 per child.
