Azkals players James Younghusband, Phil Younghusband, Ian Araneta, Angel Guirado and co-captain Chieffy Caligdong, among others, will join forces with members of the United Football League (Philippines) to form the selection squad Ázkals Alyansa.
CFIM chief Stephen Kenneth Newman said in a message on the team’s Facebook account that the game “is going to be an exciting and competitive match, something which I believe we owe to the organizers of the relief efforts who are working so hard, and to all of the supporters who will turn up for the game”.
Before the match, fans will be treated to a celebrity football challenge, which will kick off at 2 p.m. Kapamilya stars, meanwhile, will lead a telethon to receive donations and pledges for Sagip Kapamilya between 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Ticket sales and other proceeds from the game will be donated to the Philippine National Red Cross to benefit victims of Typhoon Sendong. Tickets to the match are at P100, P200, P300, P400 and P500 and are sold at Ticketworld outlets.
Catch the special charity match between the Azkals Alyansa and the CF Internacional Madrid on Studio 23 this Saturday (Jan 7), 4 p.m. Viewers abroad will be able to catch the excitement via ABS-CBN’s Kapamilya Bro channel and IPTV.
