THE response to Celtic FC Foundation’s Henrik’s Heroes v Lubo’s Legends match has been absolutely phenomenal and we are delighted to confirm that standard tickets for the May 28 encounter are now sold out – but there’s still an opportunity for those who can’t make it along to show their support.
Over 60,000 fans will be packed into Celtic Park for the match – which is being sponsored by Dafabet and Utilita – to witness the return to Paradise of some of our favourite Bhoys, while supporting the work of the Foundation.
Despite the sell out, supporters who can’t get along on the day or who maybe live overseas, still have the chance to get behind the initiative, by making a donation of £5 to receive a virtual ticket.
This is a great way for members of the Celtic Family throughout the world to play their part, should they be unable to make it to the match in person, and help us make a real difference in doing so.
Please donate £5 HERE now to claim your virtual ticket.
Net proceeds of the game will be devoted to Celtic FC Foundation, a charity aiming to uphold and promote the founding principles of our football club.
The four priorities are to improve health, promote equality, encourage learning and tackle poverty and the Foundation have a strong track record of delivering successful community-based projects.
Some of the funds will be used to extend existing projects such as the award-winning ‘Ability Counts’ – a project aimed at children and young people who live with Down’s Syndrome or Autism.
We will also assist with Community Care for Dementia through a series of initiatives. Finally, we have partnered with Mary’s Meals to create The 67 Kitchens campaign which will see Celtic fans support the building of 67 school kitchens for children in the developing world and send emergency food aid to South Sudan and Syria.
We will have more details on all of these projects and how supporters could get involved in the coming weeks.
Thank you very much for your wonderful support.
