Niall Horan - Niall Horan orgnaises charity soccer match


Niall Horan has organised a charity soccer match.

The 20-year-old One Direction star took to Twitter to announce the game in aid of Irish Autism Action's UK Hearts and Minds challenge and has already recruited bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne to play on his side.

He wrote on the social networking website earlier today (17.04.14): ''Doin a charity football game at Leicester city's stadium on the 26th of may, Louis and liam are on my team, I'll be the manager! [sic]''

He added: ''Big names involved! In aid of Irish autism!

''Can't wait for the game ! Gona be great! Make sure ya get ur tickets !(sic)''

However, Niall won't be lining up on the pitch alongside his bandmates because of a knee injury.

Asked if his knee problem means he won't play, he said: ''no can't play unfortunately ! (sic)''

While the full team line-ups are yet to be announced, the 'Live While Were Young' singer has also signed up Olly Murs, Rod Stewart, Robbie Fowler, Jason McAteer and Irish Autism Action ambassador Keith Duffy to take on former Derby County captain Robbie Savage's side at Leicester City's King Power stadium on the 26th of May.

Tickets for the match are available on TicketMaster now, with all proceeds from the match going to the Mullingar-based charity.
