    A Match For Cancer squads update

    By: Newsroom Staff on 02 Sep, 2018 19:05

  • THINGS are heating up ahead of A Match for Cancer as both captains add to their squad, with John Terry, Paulo Ferreira, Jermaine Defoe, Joan Capdevila and Marcos Senna now on board.

    Stiliyan Petrov has also added Carl Ikeme to his backroom team. Retired goalkeeper Carl spent his entire career at Wolves. He was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia in July 2017 and is now in full remission.

    Sponsored by Dafabet and Laduma, the game will take place at Celtic Park on Saturday, September 8, 2018, with a 2pm KO.

    The match will see Celtic legend, Stiliyan - who has bravely battled through Leukaemia since being diagnosed in 2012 - and Liverpool midfielder, James Milner pull together opposing squads from the worlds of football and entertainment.

    Every penny raised will be devoted to tackling cancer through three equal beneficiary charities - Celtic FC Foundation, the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation and the James Milner Foundation.

    Celtic FC Foundation and the Stiliyan Petrov Foundation have confirmed two cancer charity partners that they will work with to make a positive difference to patients and their families – the Beatson Cancer Charity and the Schiehallion Ward through Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

    The James Milner Foundation - set up around the time of Stiliyan’s diagnosis - has Bloodwise, the charity that combats blood cancer, as one of its major beneficiaries.
