CHUNKZ' 'MATCH FOR HOPE' RAISES £7.5 MILLION FOR CHARITY

The charity match which ended in a 12 goal thriller in Qatar on Friday brought together some of the world's most popular internet celebrities and football legends for 'Match for Hope' and raised more than £7.5 million. Team Chunkz defeated Team AboFlah 7-5 at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium in front of more than 30,000, with thousands more watching online.

“I'm so happy, elated and the real win was to try to raise enough money for charity, but of course I really did want to win the football match, and we managed to leave with the win, so I'm very, very happy,” Chunkz told The National.

The money will go to educational programmes in countries such as Mali, Rwanda, Tanzania, Pakistan, Palestine and Sudan through the Education Above All Foundation.

Team captain Chunkz, 28, whose real name is Amin Mohamed, is a Somali-British YouTuber and entertainer, with more than three million YouTube subscribers and 4.4 million followers on Instagram. His fellow captain AboFlah, who lives in Kuwait, also has a significant following with more than nine million on Instagram and 37.2 million on YouTube.

He has participated in charity matches before, including Soccer Aid and ones with the Sidemen, however, this event was especially meaningful for him.

The star-studded match was held at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, Qatar and featured the likes of Drogba, Hazard and Kaka. The line up also included stars Yung Filly, Harry Pinero and Aitch.
