If you’re not yet up to date on social media, the announcement of the Ultimate Quaran-Team tournament has taken Twitter by storm, with 128 teams across the globe getting involved in the FIFA challenge.
The initiative is one borne out of the desire to bring clubs together during a time of unprecedented measures surrounding COVID-19, and so far has been a great success.
The Iron, who were among the opening teams to put themselves down for the challenge, were the 43rd tie to be drawn out, with the mission of hosting Championship side Charlton Athletic.
Tickets won’t be available, as we will all be in self-isolation by then, but we are hopefully going to be able to stream the match.
As soon as we have more details of when this fixture will take place and where you can watch it, we will announce.
How To Donate?
Firstly, for vital funding for EFL clubs who are going to have massive financial struggles (as of course will many industries across the world) during this time of fixture postponement.
With no matchday income for the foreseeable future football clubs are struggling and things will only get worse.
If this cause can play a small way for clubs going during an unprecedented time, then it would be an amazing force for good. 75% of money raised will be given to the EFL within 28 days.
Secondly, the remaining 25% will be split between for two very worthy causes. One is the EFL’s chosen charity ‘MIND’ (219830), and secondly in funding the all-important COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser by WHO.
