ENGLAND FOOTBALLERS FOUNDATION
Footballers Lives teamed up with the England Footballers Foundation (EFF) for it’s tenth anniversary year by filming an exclusive video diary of last month’s annual Charity Cup, won by Jermaine Defoe’s JD18 team.
The event saw Theo Walcott, Calum Chambers, Wayne Bridge and Glenn Hoddle manage opposing teams, while ITV broadcaster Clive Tyldesley provided all the commentary. Footballers Lives got behind the scenes access to these England stars from past and present to see how they fared as managers for a day.
The footage has been released on the eve of the World Cup draw in Russia and highlights another successful year in the charity’s history. To date, the EFF has raised over £5million for good causes and the players have conducted over 300 personal appearances for charities across the country.
Along with filming the day's event, Footballers Lives entered a team of our own, made up of comedians, magicians, famous football fans and footballer barbers. Their legend manager was Mark Bright and the ex-England player put the amateur athletes through their paces, as we chartered their progress.
