AFC Portchester will be hosting the Lee Rigby Memorial Cup event once again in 2020.

The date for the popular charity match has been confirmed for May 23, 2020 - with the match between the Lee Rigby ‘Rangers Select’ and Pompey Charity squads kicking off at 2pm at the Crest Finance Stadium.

The special event is set to attract a host of former Rangers and Pompey stars, with the likes of Mark Hateley, Keith Gillespie and Marco Negri already confirming their attendance.

Interest in the match has proven to be very popular already, with VIP pre-match tickets selling out in just over 24 hours.

AFC Portchester chairman Paul Kelly is immensely proud that the club will be hosting the Lee Rigby Memorial Cup once again.

He said: “I’m already looking forward to this event as it is going to be a great day.

“We are so proud at AFC Portchester to be hosting this event and we can’t wait to welcome all of our visitors on May 23 and help to raise money for such a worthy cause as well.

“The level of interest already shown in this event since it was launched last week has been phenomenal. The pre-match VIP tickets we had available sold out in just over 24 hours - that support is brilliant and there are so many people who want to be a part of what will be a very special day.

“Tickets are available to buy from our website now and other special packages for the day will be available there too as soon as they are announced.

“I urge everyone to get their tickets and join us in helping to raise as much money for the Lee Rigby Foundation as we possibly can.”

The event will be raising money for the Lee Rigby Foundation, which works to provide a support network for bereaved military families, veterans families and serving military families through respite therapy in whatever form works for those affected.

As well as the match itself, the day will also include plenty of other entertainment - from marching bands to opportunities to meet the star players who will be taking part.
