The special match will be played in aid of The Haven, a local charity supporting vulnerable women and children affected by domestic abuse and homelessness.
Wolves Pride FC currently plays in the Wolverhampton & District Sunday League while Black Country Fusion FC plays in the Sunday Beacon League, with the latter set up last year by transgender female Skye Stewart with the aim of creating a completely inclusive football team that fully embraces the LGBT community and promotes equality.
The one-off charity match between the two teams will kick off at 5pm at Molineux, with tickets priced at only £5 for adults and £2 for children under 16.
Kevin Rogers, CEO of Paycare, said: “We’ve been proud partners of Wolves for many, many years, and are delighted that we have been able to use this opportunity to not only support grass-roots football and promote the wonderful work that both Black Country Fusion FC and Wolves Pride FC do to tackle societal prejudices, but to also raise much-needed funds for a very worthwhile cause.”
The ball boys on the day will be representing Bilbrook Junior U9s, who will also be hosting a special penalty shootout at half time.
Skye Stewart of Black Country Fusion FC said: “We are all hugely excited about having the opportunity to step out onto the Molineux pitch on the 14th May, and would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the team at Paycare for making it happen. Whether you’re a football fan or not, this promises to be an absolutely fantastic event and we’d love to see as many local people as possible coming along and supporting this wonderful cause.”
