We are happy to support a new social enterprise, created by a London based player.The James Jozef Bandanas supports London’s events through giving fair pay to their performing athletes and artists. This has become a stronger issue through Covid-19 as smaller clubs and venues are fighting for their existence and are forced to cut expenses. The company will work with the events and ensure that 100% of the fund will be used to support their performers. The bonus match will be contested between two London based athletes – more details to follow
