Sunday 20th May sees the MK Dons Legends return to face the Foxes of Leicester City Legends who will be the opponents at Stadium MK for the annual Legends match raising money for MK Dons Sport and Education Trust.

Events Managed will once again bring together a team of ex-MK Dons players to play opponents Leicester City to raise money for the SET and are looking to beat their contribution of last year by targeting £10,000 which will help benefit many of the 50,000 people the SET engage with each year.

The match is sponsored by Brioche Pasquier who will also be sampling the great range of 'PITCH' pre-packed brioche on the day and will see ex-professionals such as Izale McLeod, Matt Piper, Mark Wright, Julian Joachim, Peter Leven and Steve Guppy amongst others wear the colours once more.

Matt Cove, Managing Director of Events Managed said, "Last year we were very grateful for the support that led to us being able to donate £2000 to the SET, this year we are looking to make that at least £10,000 working with Brioche Pasquier, MK Dons and SET to help make a difference to the local community surrounding Milton Keynes. We also would like to thank match ball sponsors Border Engineering supporting us for the second year."

Marketing Manager, Melissa Bentley from Brioche Pasquier explains why they partnered with MK Dons Legends. "We feel that the Legends game is a great concept that brings together fans and players for a day of football that all can enjoy.

"After the success of last year, we saw great potential in the game and saw value in the opportunity to be involved as well as supporting the local football club. We believe that the pairing of a PITCH product at a football game just makes sense and it's something that all the fans and family can indulge in".

The Legends match kicks off at 2pm on Sunday 20th May and tickets are now available to buy online from mkdons.com, via the box office booking line on 0333 2005343 or in person priced at £8 adults, £4 concessions.
