The celeb football tournament was devised by Sussex builders merchants Chandlers Building Supplies, who are known for their charitable outreach work. It is presented in association with Celeb FC.

There will be a hog roast available, as well as fish and chips, crepes, gin and a prosecco bar. The day also features live music and entertainment for kids.

Supporters can get photos with the celebrity lookalikes too.

Kerry Mayo, who was a defender for the Seagulls from 1995 until 2009, said: “The Brighton players jumped at the chance to support four great charities while being able to play football together.”
