German charity football team Bananenflanker Legenden have launched online ticket sales for a virtual Legends Day (Legendentag) to raise funds for amateur clubs who have been suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fundraiser aims to collect as many donations as possible through tickets sales for their annual Legends Day. This year’s Legends Day had to be cancelled because of COVID-19. The organisers have decided to conduct a virtual Legends Day instead and to forward the proceeds from the ticket sales to amateur clubs in the German state of Bavaria.
The virual Bananenflanker Legenden vs. Corona match will take place at the Bananenflanker Online Arena on June 13, 2020. The squad for the virtual match includes players such as Michael Hofmann, Thomas Ziemer, Peter Közle, Patrick Mölzl, Nico Beigang, Dominik Reinhardt, Tobias Werner, Philipp Bönig, Mike Rietpietsch and Carsten Lakies. Sky Sport News HD anchor Nele Schenker is the sporting director of the team.
Tickets for the online fundraiser have been priced at 10 Euros and can be purchased on following website:
