Masters Football - Kanu Cup 2018

Arsene Wenger was guest of honour at ex-Arsenal legend Kanu’s charity game, joining the player he managed for five years in order to help raise money for the Kanu Heart Foundation.

The Petrolex Kanu Cup in association with Masters FootballTM set out to raise money for the Kanu Heart Foundation and provide children in Africa with life-saving heart operations, with Wenger taking to the dugout one last time!

The game kicked off on Sunday 30th September 2018 at The Hive Stadium in Barnet, with Kanu teaming up with footballing stars from the Premier League and African football to help support the charity.

The benches and dressing rooms were well stocked with iPro Sports drinks, the hydration partner of the charity event. Kanu himself commented, “We are delighted to have iPro Sport involved in the event. The players appreciate the requirement for specialist products and it has been important to have a hydration drink on hand to offer players throughout the game. We are very happy with this partnership!”
