Grief Encounter is thrilled to be working with Sellebrity Soccer to host the charity’s 20th Anniversary Celebrity Football Match on May 5th, 2024, at Watford’s home ground, Vicarage Road. Kick off will be at 3pm!

The event will be in aid of Grief Encounter, a leading UK charity supporting bereaved children, young people, and their families after the death of a parent, sibling, or someone close. This star-studded fundraiser promises an unforgettable day for a very worthy cause, whilst celebrating two decades of helping children and young people and giving hope and healing to countless families.

Confirmed to take to the pitch so far is YouTube stars Chunkz and Sharky, alongside well-known faces Dean Gaffney, Owen Warner, Louis Matthews, Ricky Groves, and Dan Osborne, plus Watford legend, Lloyd Doyley; and ITV’s Love Island favourites, Ouzy See, Adam Maxted, and Billy Brown. Tickets will sell at £12 each, or you can get your hands on one of only 50 Meet & Greet VIP tickets for £40.

The event, hosted by Sellebrity Soccer, brings together a host of celebrities and former footballing legends for a thrilling display of skill and sportsmanship, all while raising vital funds and awareness for Grief Encounter’s vital services. Without professional bereavement support, children and young people facing grief can go on to experience behavioural, academic, and financial issues – often grappling with isolation, poor school attendance, mental health issues, early unemployment, and increased risk of death by despair.

“We are thrilled to bring the Sellebrity Football Match to Watford FC’s iconic stadium in aid of Grief Encounter,” said Kevin Cooper, CEO, Sellebrity Soccer. “This event allows us to support this wonderful charity in their essential work with bereaved children and families, whilst also celebrating their 20 years of service, and showcasing the incredible talent of our celebrity participants and former footballing greats.”

“We are so grateful for the ongoing support of events like the Sellebrity Football Match,” said Andy Watts, Head of Fundraising, Grief Encounter. “The funds raised will enable us to provide our vital services to the most vulnerable children and young people who need it most.”

Previous Sellebrity Football Matches have seen a stellar line-up of celebrity participants and football legends take to the pitch and this year’s match promises to be no exception, with a full line-up of talent set to be announced in the coming weeks.
