SSE AIRTRICITY LEAGUE club Cabinteely FC have announced this afternoon that they’ll play host to a charity game involving British rock band Muse.

The game — a Cabinteely XI versus Muse and their crew — will take place at Stradbrook, the League of Ireland First Division club’s home ground, at 7.45pm on Monday, 4 April.

Muse, whose debut album was released back in 1999, are due to play a show at Dublin’s 3Arena as part of their ‘Drones’ tour on Tuesday, 5 April.

According to Cabinteely FC’s website, manager Eddie Gormley will line out for the Cabo XI. Admission to the game will be free but the club will be collecting on the night for a charity, details of which will be announced shortly.

Cabinteely FC say Muse’s bassist Chris Wolstenholme’s 16-year-old son Alfie is a former player of the club.

Cabinteely FC, who are currently third in the First Division, entertain Waterford United this Saturday evening before travelling to Drogheda United on Friday, 1 April.
