Big names facing off this weekend

The regular season might be over. The World Cup is not yet upon us. You might think that this is the end of the world.

Don’t worry though, there is plenty of football to look forward to this weekend. On Sunday, you will of course be able to see The Cup live on YouTube featuring Palmers FC – the world’s biggest grassroots football team. Before that though, you will be able to see some more familiar faces of the internet take to the pitch.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Potentially for the last time ever, SDMN will be taking to the pitch at The Valley (home of Charlton Athletic Football Club) in London this Saturday looking to seek revenge on the YouTube Allstars. In one of the biggest charity matches of 2017, goals from Castro and ChrisMD sealed a 2-0 victory for the Allstars.

YoungMinds: charity partner

Just like last year’s game, the Nike match kits on show will be provided by We are incredibly proud to be supplying product for the likes of grime heavyweight JME and vlogger/rapper/boxer KSI. On top of this, as per last year, the match is raising money for some great causes – which is pretty awesome.

YoungMinds are a national charity that help children with mental health problems. The organisation has been around for 25 years and is largely reliant on fundraising events such as this one. It has been responsible a number of projects designed to improve awareness of such issues, as well as supporting those in need. On Saturday, YoungMinds – along with Charlton Athletic’s Community Trust – will benefit from the ticket sales generated.

Over 20,000 watched last year’s game from the stands, with proceeds that day going to the CACT and ChildLine – another important charity for young people. As well as raising a huge amount for the causes, the game also had the highest attendance at the Valley for years. Couple that with over ten million combined views of match footage online, it’s safe to say that the event was a success. Serious!


The Nike match kits on show

This year, both sides will be donning the new Nike Tiempo Premier match shirt. The tops have proven to be popular with customers since the January release from the manufacturer, and SDMN are definitely not ones to miss out on a trend. They’ve – of course – gone for the black version, with YouTube AllStars in red.

For all fans of Sidemen the shirts will be available to purchase at the game and then also from the Sidemen Clothing site ( after the match (alongside all their other class merchandise that you know and love!). If you are heading to the game, you can grab your merch from 12pm on match-day. Easy.

Football’s Home This Weekend

We’re pumped to be involved in your weekend’s viewing of football. Make sure you’re connected to some speedy wi-fi and Sidemen’s channel on Saturday for the 4pm kick-off. The event is sure to be entertaining (the match finished 7-2 in 2016) and will help to raise vital funds for worthy causes.

Similarly, don’t forget that four more sides will be wearing our gear on Sunday. The Cup will see Palmers FC take on Team Kitlocker and two invitational teams in our home of Sheffield. We’re looking forward to welcoming Brinsworth Crusaders and Swarthmore Social Football Club. Just like Palmers, we’ll be providing them with their own Nike match kit.

The tournament is set to start at noon on the Palmers channel. Join us as we celebrate grassroots football and a year partnering the side in orange and black.

Enjoy your weekend, guys!
