“I am very excited to host my first charity football match with myself and my band mates Liam and Louis looking forward to giving Robbie Savage a run for his money”, said Niall Horan, “I feel very privileged that I am the position to be able to raise a significant amount of money for Irish Autism Action which is based in my home town of Mullingar.  I am also delighted to also raise funds for UK based Heart and Minds Challenge and the Leicester City Foxes Foundation on the day.  I have no doubt that the mix of celebrities and sporting legends will provide great fun and entertainment for the crowd attending,” he said.
