Supermarket giants Tesco and Waitrose are taking their rivalry onto the football pitch, with a charity match at Maidstone United’s home ground this weekend.
Workers from distribution centres in Aylesford will be playing at The Gallagher Stadium in to raise money for Tesco’s charity Diabetes UK and Waitrose’s chosen cause, Great Ormond Street Hospital.
It comes after Tesco’s planned match against ex-Arsenal players was postponed until August - leaving them with a stadium to fill.
Danny Feathers, warehouse partner at Waitrose in Forstal Road, thought up the tie.
He said: “Quite a few of the lads are Maidstone United fans so they are excited to be playing at The Gallagher Stadium.
“There were a few heads turned when we suggested playing Tesco as we are rival but for charity it will be good to join forces.”
Kick off is at 2.30pm on Sunday at The Gallagher Stadium in James Whatman Way.
Entry now costs £1 and there will be a chance to donate before and after the game, as well as a raffle.
