Wightlink’s Customer Reception Officer – Adrian Farrell said:

“It’s an amazing and enjoyable way for both of the cross-Solent operators to join forces. Ryde Inshore Rescue is a charity that I myself volunteer for, so it is very close to my heart. This football game gives us a great opportunity to raise some much-needed funds so I hope we can get a bit of a crowd.

“I can’t promise Barcelona Vs Real Madrid, but one thing’s for sure, we’ll be playing to win.”

Spectators are very welcome and will also be given the opportunity to dig deep for the inshore rescue team.
