The Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge!

The Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge in May will be a charity soccer match for an amazing cause, featuring members of One Direction on the field! What more could you ask for in an event?the niall horan charity football challenge

Taking place May 26 at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England, an incredible game of football (that's soccer for all of our fellow Americans out there!) will take place to benefit Irish Autism Action, a charity based out of Niall's hometown of Mullingar.

Niall will coach his team as they go up a team led by former Derby Country captain Robbie Savage. Niall is a longtime supporter of the Derby County football team, so it will be an interesting matchup to witness!

Niall's team will include fellow One Direction members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, as well as musicians Olly Murs, Rod Stewart and Keith Duffy, who also happens to be an ambassador for Irish Autism Action. Retired footballers Robbie Fowler and Jason McAteer will also be part of his team!

The full team rosters will be revealed at the end of the month. We can't wait to see who else will be playing!

All of the proceeds will go toward helping Irish Autism Action as well as to the UK Heart and Minds Challenge

We think it's amazing that the One Direction guys are banding together for such an incredible cause! If you haven't yet, be sure to check out their new music video for "You & I" here, and also become a part of our One Direction community at!
