Both charities provide support and rehabilitation and improve the lives of children and adults faced with illness by giving them the opportunity to take part in activities that aren’t usually available to them.

Our goal is to raise as much money as possible and historically these items have done the best in terms of raising funds:
-Autographed equipment or jerseys(if possible please have it certified authenticate)
-Experiences (tickets for an event, private behind-the-scenes tour of a stadium or venue)
-Certificates for services or dining experiences
-Professional video or audio equipment

The Friendship Sports Centre is a local charity in Amsterdam supporting children and young adults with physical or mental disability or chronic illness by offering them somewhere where they can become part of a team through sporting activities.

The Edwin van der Sar Foundation implements projects to support people with brain injuries through rehabilitation, participation and prevention.

To confirm your place on the IBC Legends Team, you will be required to make a donation of €1,500 per place. This donation will cover two players to fill your place, which allows for a substitution.
