If you are familiar with Steve Nash then you’ll know that he’s not just an NBA superstar for the Phoenix Suns but also a fanatical Tottenham fan. Yep, a basketball player who knows his football inside out and isn't too shabby with the ball at his feet.
Last year Steve was responsible for the ‘Showdown in Chinatown’ event which hosted the likes of Henry, Fowler, Kalou and several other players in a team-up with various NBA stars in a charity match in NYC’s Chinatown.
And now it’s time for another tussle of the beautiful game with an insane roster of stars from both the world of football and basketball running around on a small pitch in the Lower East Side in front of what will be no doubt hundreds of fans, hanging off a chain-link fence.
It's raw and it's energetic and it's a once in a life-time opportunity - although I can’t quite work out why Steve hasn’t invited David Bentley, considering he does his best work in the streets, you know, with skips and rooftops.
And here's your chance to be a part of it all as Football For Good is offering an all-expenses paid trip for two to New York to attend the event on June 24th courtesy of Steve.
All you have to do is make a $5 donation to Steve’s Football for Good charity which aims to bring community-centred academy football to regions of Africa that have been ravaged by war.
Can’t argue with the cause or the prize so get on it for a chance to swap the Hackney Marshes for New Youk and fly across the Atlantic to rub shoulders with Alessandro Del Piero, Gennaro Gattuso, Kaka and co.
Competition ends on June 17th, so visit the page and entry form here .
