TikTokers and YouTubers including Luke Bennett, Mavric and ZaynQF will play as Jake Page holds his second United v Content Creators game on Wednesday, June 17, to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA).

Mr Page, from Norwich, decided to hold the games after his grandfather died of the disease in 2019.

He became inspired by the Soccer Aid initiative to organise an event to help others with the condition.

The game is played between two teams in blue and orange, the MNDA colours, made up of Mr Page's friends and social media celebrities.

Mr Page said: "I do it for my grandad. He’s always my inspiration for everything I do, so I hope I make him proud with these games.

"I do everything myself, all the planning and branding, which can be quite stressful, but it's worth it.

"I enjoyed the 2022 event so much, it means a lot to me to be able to do this in honour of my grandad."

Last year, Mr Page's first event raised £377 for the charity during a thrilling match which finished 6-5 to the blue team and featured city YouTuber JaackMaate and former Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell's brother Jordan, who is also a YouTuber.

Mr Page also raised £100 before last year's match by dyeing his hair pink.

Tickets cost £10 and can be bought from the team's website, but people can get a 50pc discount by using the code 'UNITED50'.
