Sheffield United and Wednesday have teamed up to support Sport Relief’s Flagship Games in the city.

Sheffield is one of six cities chosen to host the Games, sponsored by Sainsbury’s, on Sunday, March 20.

Participants will run, walk, swim or cycle at events in the city to raise cash for disadvantaged people.

Owls defender, Tom Lees, said: “It’s great to support Sport Relief as it’s a fun way to raise money across the country. We want to encourage supporters to sign up, get involved and help to increase funds for the good cause.”

Sheffield United forward, Jose Baxter, said: “Everyone can get involved no matter how sporty you are - so bring your friends and family and sign up to walk, run, swim or cycle. You won’t just be doing yourself proud, you’ll be doing the whole of Sheffield proud as the money you raise will help to change people’s lives right here in Yorkshire.
