KSI is set to switch focus from boxing to football after his YouTube group announced the long-awaited return of their charity football match this weekend.
KSI, real name Olajide Olayinka Williams “JJ” Olatunji, has already transformed his body after his bout against Swarmz.
And the 29-year-old has had to stay in shape in order to lace up his boots for the Sidemen charity football match.
The once-annual event ran successively from 2016-2018 but is now back after a four-year absence at Charlton’s stadium.
The match sold out in 24 hours which marks the first sell out crowd at The Valley in 2022 – with the club only officially selling out once since the second leg of their playoff semi-final win over Doncaster in 2019.
The average attendance at the Addicks ground last term currently stands at 14,587 – just over half of their 27,111 capacity.
It has also been announced that Crawley Town will be scouting the match looking for any players after they gave reality TV star Mark Wright a short-term contract in the 2020/21 season.
Sidemen vs YouTube Allstars: Date and start time
This charity football match will take place on Saturday, September 24.
Kick-off at Charlton’s Valley Stadium in south London is scheduled for 3pm.
Ben Garner’s Addicks side will also be in action on the same day and at the same time as they face an away trip to Barnsley.
