Hibernian FC are offering fans the chance to play at the Hibs Training Centre as part of charity match that will be played for 24 hours, in memory of the club’s late Executive Chairman Ron Gordon.
The unique game, which will take place on Saturday 24th June at 3pm and run until 3pm the following afternoon, will cost £15 to play for an hour or more with the club asking that supporters each raise £100 for the Hibernian Community Foundation.
Those who take part will get the chance to be coached by either a men’s or women’s first team player, with proceeds raised from the event going towards those struggling under the cost-of-living crisis.
Hibernian FC Chief Executive, Ben Kensell, commented: “We want to create something special, and something that carries on the legacy of a great man, by bringing supporters and people together, right to the heart of the Football Club, to raise money for the Hibernian Community Foundation.”
“Ron was an extremely passionate man and someone who cared dearly about the role the Football Club plays in the local community.”
“I think this challenge is really exciting and could be really testing, especially for those playing at 3am or 4am, but ultimately it’ll be a good laugh for everyone and will bring the football club, the supporters, and the Community Foundation all together.”
