Kick-off the new season by taking part in the British Heart Foundation’s virtual quiz night to raise vital funds for its life-saving research.
Think you know your Ronaldo from your Ronaldinho, who won the first ever Premier League, and who missed that fateful penalty at Euro 96? Join England legends David Seaman and Glenn Hoddle, alongside Radio 1’s Chris Stark, as they celebrate the return of the football season by hosting the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) first football themed quiz night on Thursday 10th September at 7pm.
The leading heart charity is encouraging football fans nationwide to put their knowledge to the test with four action packed rounds covering the Premier League, the FA Cup, Euro 96 and the World Cup.
Ex-Arsenal and England goalkeeper David Seaman said: “It’s great to be part of the first BHF Footie Quiz Night. Glenn, Chris and I are looking forward to putting you through your paces. We want everyone to get involved and raise as much money as we can to help the BHF be there for the millions of people affected by heart and circulatory disease.”
The coronavirus pandemic has had a devastating effect on the BHF, and it anticipates it will have to cut funding for new research by £50 million this year. The charity says the quiz could help raise vital funds at a time it’s work has never been more important.
Former England manager and BHF ambassador, Glenn Hoddle, said: “My experience of having a cardiac arrest has changed my life. I’m delighted to be able to support the BHF’s Footie Quiz Night. Every pound raised will help continue to fund their life saving research and provide support for people in the UK living with heart and circulatory conditions.”
Overseeing the quiz will be host of That Peter Crouch Podcast and all-round football fan Chris Stark. The Radio 1 DJ said: “It’s an honour to be the Quiz Master for BHF’s Footie Quiz Night. I’m going to be testing your trivia with 50 fiendishly difficult questions covering domestic and world football. Today it’s more important than ever to continue to raise vital funds for the British Heart Foundation’s life-saving research.”
