Walsall Football Club have confirmed that the Banks's Stadium will be hosting a celebrity football match on Saturday, 13th May in aid of the 'Smile for Joel' and Compton Hospice charities.

The charity match will see a Smile for Joel team, the Smiling Saddlers, come up against a Compton Hospice side, the Compton Wolves.

'Smile for Joel' was set up in memory of Walsall supporter Joel Richards, who died alongside uncle Adrian Evans, grandfather Patrick Evans and 35 others in terror attacks near the Tunisian holiday resort of Sousse in 2015.

All proceeds raised from the event, which is being organised by Sellebrity Soccer and sponsored by Tile Choice, will be split equally between the two charities.

Celebrities including Walsall boxer Martin Gethin, EastEnders actor Jake Wood and former Birmingham City goalkeeper Maik Taylor have already been confirmed.

Compton Hospice is a Wolverhampton based charity which has been supporting patients facing a life-limiting illness, and their families, for over 30 years.

Their purpose is to make a difference to people’s lives when their illness is no longer curable. They do this by treating people, not conditions, whether their needs are physical, psychological, social or spiritual.

Their services are available free-of-charge to people in Wolverhampton, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall, South Staffordshire and East Shropshire.

Tickets for the event, which are on sale now, cost just £10 for adults and £5 for juniors, with VIP tickets priced at £35.

Purchase yours now by calling the Banks's Stadium Ticket Office on 01922 651 416 or visit the club's eticketing website, here.
