The Club and Matchroom Boxing will be donating 200 tickets for Anthony Joshua's Heavyweight World Title defence against Oleksandr Usyk at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 25 September to the NHS, via Blue Light Tickets.
This huge fight – set to be one of the biggest events of the 2021 sporting calendar – is the latest spectacle from the world of sport and entertainment to arrive in N17.
Tottenham Hotspur has worked closely with the NHS throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with the stadium hosting North Middlesex University Hospital’s women’s outpatient services and drive-through testing last year.
More than 9,000 local people have received a COVID vaccination at the stadium this year, thanks to a series of pop-up clinics run in partnership with the NHS North Central London CCG.
The stadium also hosted teams from North Middlesex and the Whittington Hospital for a staff football match that took place on the hallowed turf in May.
Daniel Levy, Chairman, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are proud to share a fantastic and long-standing relationship with our local NHS services, as we have seen throughout the pandemic, and are delighted to be working with Matchroom to provide hard-working staff with this special opportunity.”
Eddie Hearn, Chairman, Matchroom Sport, said: “I’m looking forward to welcoming another 200 NHS workers to our incredible night of boxing at the breath-taking Tottenham Hotspur Stadium next week. It's set to be a memorable occasion for everyone in attendance as 'AJ' puts his Heavyweight crowns on the line against former Undisputed Cruiserweight king Oleksandr Usyk. Blue Light Tickets is a brilliant scheme that rightly rewards our brilliant and selfless NHS workers and those working in the emergency services.”
Blue Light Tickets is a completely free service for NHS employees and those working within the emergency services; allowing them to easily enter into ballots for tickets to events across the UK.
