Jake Bugg launches charity football tournament

Jake Bugg has launched charity football tournament, Football Rocks.

Football Rocks will see a host of musicians take to the pitch to raise money for the British Heart Foundation and Bugg’s Robin Hoody Foundation.

The Enemy, Saint Raymond, Reverend and the Makers and Liam Gallagher’s clothing brand Pretty Green will all enter teams into the tournament, which takes place at Notts County ground Meadow Lane on May 16.

“I love football and the lads and I have a game wherever we can when on tour,” said Bugg.

“Growing up watching Notts County play at Meadow Lane with my Grandad I can’t wait to play there with my mates in front of a good crowd and raise some money for such great causes.

“The team are organising a really great day and the atmosphere will be brilliant for all ages with plenty of surprise visits during the day, everyone’s being so generous with their time.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now, priced at £10.
