X Factor winner and global star James Arthur will be taking part in the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s celebrity football match on Saturday 11th May at Walsall FC.

The ‘Impossible’ singer, along with boyband Blue’s Lee Ryan, is the most recently confirmed celebrity taking part in the star-studded match to raise vital funds for the lifesaving charity, which carried out over 300 missions in the West Midlands area last year.

He joins a number of stars already confirmed to take part in the game including fellow X Factor winner Shane Ward, Eastenders’ Jake Wood and TOWIE’s James Argent. Tickets for the match can be purchased at midlandsairambulance.com/charityfootballmatch19

Jo Bailey, events and area fundraising manager, said: “To have James Arthur on board for our very first charity football match event is fantastic. He’s such a big name in the showbiz world, our long list of great celebrity players just keeps on growing.

“Tickets are selling fast for this event and the VIP tickets have all sold out now. Prices are just £12 per adult and £6 per child, there’s no excuse to come down for what promises to be a great day out!”

The evening before the match, fans also have the opportunity to enjoy a three-course dinner with some of the stars, in an informal and friendly setting at the stadium. Limited places are available, so visit Midlands Air Ambulance Charity’s website to book a space!
