Michael Schumacher To Be Honoured In Second Charity Football Match

Michael Schumacher To Be Honoured In Second Charity Football Match

For the second year in a row the Champions for Charity football match will be held in the honour of former seven time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher.

F1 legend Schumacher suffered a serious head injury in December 2013 after a near fatal skiing injury and was in a medically induced coma for six months.

Since September 2014 the German has been relocated to his home to continue medical treatment and rehabilitation privately and has not been seen since.

Last year some familiar faces from F1, sport and other celebrities held a charity football match in Schumacher's name and once again this year they will play the match for charity.

The game will raise funds for the German Dirk Nowitzki Foundation, with basketballer Dirk Nowitzki taking part in the match, and the Schumacher's Keep Fighting Initiative

"For me it is a matter of course that I am attending Champions for Charity. At last year's match I barely stopped laughing, and it's a good feeling to be able to support charitable initiatives.

"This combination of fun and purpose is perfect in my eyes. I am glad that Dirk, along with all the other players and the spectators in the stadium can see it the same way; and I'm looking forward to an entertaining match."

Schumacher's former rival Mika Hakkinen, the last man to win the driver's world championship before the German's five in a row, will play in the match.

Former German international Miroslav Klose has also confirmed he will play in the match again having made appearance last year as well.
