With sporting events around the country called off due to the extremely challenging circumstances facing the country due to coronavirus/COVID-19, some of Ireland’s leading League of Ireland stars are taking their football skills online to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland’s 65 Roses Day.
The extratime.ie esports Cup will see ten players from Ireland’s Premier Division take up their Play Station 4 (PS4) consoles and tackle each other from the comfort of their own homes in the FIFA20 video game.
Cystic Fibrosis Ireland has had to cancel collections on its 65 Roses Day due to COVID-19. This is Cystic Fibrosis Ireland’s largest fundraising day of the year, targeted to raise €200,000 required to provide support and services for people with cystic fibrosis in Ireland which is now needed more than ever.
Below are the players, the commentators and the games you can watch and enjoy. Whatever you do we hope you donate to this Cystic Fibrosis Ireland fundraiser
