'My Tribute' is in aid of people affected by addiction

Calum Best is the well known socialite son of the world's greatest footballer (admit it), George Best, who over the past few years has turned his life from negative to positive.

The 33-year-old has banished his "demons" and now uses his businesses to help people do better in life. He works closely with UK-based charity NACOA (National Association for Children of Alcoholics).

On August 31st, Best is hosting a 'My Tribute' game (3pm ko) where the Calum Best XI will take on a team selected by Brian McFadden in what will be a celebrity-packed fixture at Tallaght Stadium. All proceeds will go to NACOA & TDATF (Tallaght Drug and Alcohol Force).

Other stars taking part include boxers Tony Bellew and Carl Frampton, James Argent of The Only Way Is Essex (TOWIE) fame and Dan Osborne, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and TOWIE.

Love Island stars Jack Fowler, Josh Denzel and Geordie Shore's Sam Gowland, along with English rapper, actor, television personality and former non-league footballer MC Harvey will also tog out.
