Everything you need to know ahead of the FIFA Ultimate QuaranTeam tournament

Leyton Orient have tonight released all the details for the FIFA QuaranTeam tournament.

Ipswich are being represented by supporter Josh Blunden – @_Joshhhh9_ and we caught up with Josh earlier this week ahead of his opening match with Melbourne Victory, a game which is dubbed the Jim Magilton derby, with the former Town captain and manager having managed the A-League side in 2012.

Currently Josh is 25/1 (as of typing) with PaddyPower, with Watford 9/1 favourite to win the gong, followed by AS Roma who you can back at 10/1.

DONATE

Please visit our Just Giving page to donate.

We are thankful to everyone who has already been so kind during this difficult period. Your money will help to raise vital funding for EFL clubs who are going to have massive financial struggles (as of course will many industries across the world) during this time of fixture postponement. With no match day income for the foreseeable future football clubs are struggling and things will only get worse.

If this cause can play a small way for clubs going during an unprecedented time, then it would be an amazing force for good. 75% of money raised will be given to the EFL within 28 days.

Secondly, the remaining 25% will be split between for two very worthy causes. One is the EFL’s chosen charity ‘MIND’ (219830), and secondly in funding the all-important COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fundraiser by WHO.
