Iker Casillas and Luis Figo visited AS editorial staff to promote “‘Partido por la ilusión”, a football charity event which will be attended by Zidane, Futre, Guti, Fernando Llorente, and Sergio Busquets. Casillas and Figo have set the event for a couple of months, to make sure that everything goes well. There are over 7,000 tickets sold from 10,000 capacity. 50% of the funds will go to the Youth Sports Foundation of the CSD, 25% for Figo Health Project of Integration, and the other 25% goes for Iker Foundation.
The event will be held today at the Palacio de los Deportes de Madrid, at 20:30. The ticket is on sale at El Corte Ingles with a price €12 for adult, and €7 for children.
Casillas and Figo also visited MARCA, where they responded questions from MARCA.com readers.
Figo is excited to play football for a good cause, and he also said that it is an honor to share the same field with a world champion (Casillas).
