MK Dons Legends return to face Leicester legends in annual SET fundraiser

The MK Dons Legends team return to face the Leicester City Legends at StadiumMK for the annual Legends match to raise money for the MK Dons Sport and Education Trust (SET).

Events Managed will once again bring together a team of ex-MK Dons players to play opponents Leicester City Legends to raise money for the SET, and they are looking to beat their contribution of last year.

The trust are targeting £10,000 which will help benefit many of the 50,000 people the SET engage with each year

The match is sponsored by Brioche Pasquier who will also be sampling the great range of ‘PITCH’ pre-packed brioche on the day and will see ex-professionals such as Izale McLeod, Matt Piper, Mark Wright, Julian Joachim, Peter Leven and Steve Guppy amongst others wear the colours once more.

Matt Cove, Managing Director of Events Managed said, “Last year we were very grateful of the support that led to us being able to donate £2000 to the SET, this year we are looking to make that at least £10,000 working with Brioche Pasquier, MK Dons and SET to help make a difference to the local community surrounding Milton Keynes.

“We also would like to thank matchball sponsors Border Engineering supporting us for the second year.”

Marketing Manager Melissa Bentley from Brioche Pasquier explains why they partnered with MK Dons Legends.

She said, “We feel that the Legends game is a great concept that brings together fans and players for a day of football that all can enjoy. After the success of last year we saw great potential in the game and saw value in the opportunity to be involved as well as supporting the local football club. We believe that the pairing of a PITCH product at a football game just makes sense and it’s something that all the fans and family can indulge in”.

The upcoming MK Dons match against Blackburn Rovers on 2nd April will see the official launch. At this game, Legends Luke Chadwick and Scott Taylor return to lend a hand before he laces his boots again for the big game.

The Legends match kicks off at 2pm on Sunday 20th May and tickets are now available to buy online from mkdons.com, via the box office booking line on 0333 2005343 or in person priced at £8 adults, £4 concessions.
