Places on the IBC team are limited to 13 and priced at €1,500, with all funds raised going to Friendship Sports Centre and the Edwin van der Sar Foundation. 

Both charities provide support and rehabilitation to improve the lives of children and adults faced with illnesses or disabilities by providing the opportunity to take part in activities that aren’t readily available to them.

The Friendship Sports Centre (FSC) is an Amsterdam-based charity that supports children and young adults who have a physical, mental health disability or chronic illness.

It is the parent charity and home of Only Friends, The Edwin van der Sar Foundation and several other charities. The monies will be received by the FSC and distributed to the charities.
