ONE lucky person will be rewarded with the chance to take part in our second celebrity football match at the Pirelli Stadium.

Burton Albion are looking for nominations for a ‘local hero’ to take part in the fixture, and that person will subsequently line-up against a host of well-known celebrities in the star-studded fixture.

An unsung hero or inspirational person will get the chance to take to the Pirelli Stadium pitch alongside soap stars, TV personalities, pop artists and many other celebrities, all of whom will play in the match at the home of Burton Albion on Sunday, September 22 – kick off 3pm.

Matt Hancock, Head of Community, said: “To be able to give someone from the local community a once-in-a-lifetime experience as a reward for their efforts, is an opportunity that we felt we wanted to give to somebody again.

"Last time, Stuart Bacon got an incredible experience to play in the game and it was a no brainer to give somebody this type of special recognition again.”

Email your nominations to by 12pm on Friday 13th September (nominees must be aged 18+).


James Argent Liam Gatsby and Dan Osborne (TOWIE); Danny Willliams, Callum Macleod, Alex Beattie, Marvin Brooks, Tom Walker and Joe Garratt (Love Island 19); Jeremy Lynch (F2 Freestylers); Sam Gowland and Joshua Ritchie (TV Personality); Alex Beattie and Jack Fowler (Love Island 18); Danny Boy Hatchard and Dean Gaffney (Soap Stars); Lee Latchford-Evans (Steps); Joe Plant (Emmerdale); Jay Hutton (Tattoo Fixers); Milad (The Singing Dentist); Man Like Haks (Comedian); Neville Wilshire (The Call Centre); Warren Phillips (Survival of the Fittest) and Gavin Ramjuan (Sky Sports News).

Many more high-profile names will be released in due course, who will be accompanied by former Burton Albion legends Aaron Webster, Lee Bell, Stuart Tomlinson and Dale Anderson in taking part in the game.
