Robert and his friend Ray Winstone will participate in a charity soccer match (or as we say in Europe – fotball). The game will take place on September 16 at 1:45 p.m. Hopefully we will get some photos! All the proceeds will go to B.C. Children’s Hospital and you can purchase your ticket here.
Some of the most popular players in Vancouver Whitecaps history will do battle against Hollywood North’s biggest stars in the Legends & Stars charity soccer match, Sept. 16, at B.C. Place to benefit B.C. Children’s Hospital.
On one of the side of the pitch, Jay DeMerit, the original captain for the MLS Whitecaps, will lead a team of alumni that includes fan favourites Y.P. Lee, David Chiumento, Ivor Evans, Steve Macdonald, and Alfredo Valente against a club chock full of actors working on big budget network TV series filmed in Vancouver.
Two young stars of the Netflix hit Riverdale, K.J. Apa (Archie Andrews) and Charles Melton (Reggie Mantle), will headline a Hollywood North team that also features veteran Brit actors Robert Carlyle, who played the psychopathic Begbie in Trainspotting, and Ray Winstone, the gruff scene-stealer known for his gangster roles in The Departed and Sexy Beast.
Carlyle stars as Rumpelstiltskin on the Vancouver-shot fantasy series Once Upon a Time, while Winstone stars in the locally produced crime/drama Ice.
Tickets are $5, with all proceeds donated to B.C. Children’s Hospital.
The hour-long game will take place at 1:45 p.m., just prior to the MLS match between the Whitecaps and Columbus Crew, which kicks off at 4 p.m. To attend the Legends & Stars showdown, fans must also have a ticket for the MLS match.
