According to the charity, over 2 million Euros were raised in 2017, with 385 teams participating in the 60 hours of non-stop football.

This year marks the 15th edition of the fundraising event, which takes place at Marsa Sports Ground.

Football isn’t the only sport on offer, as with previous editions, the event will also host a Volleyball marathon.

Puttinu Cares is a Cancer Support Group which had originally been set up in 2002, with the aim of providing wide-ranging care to children suffering from cancer and their parents.

Money raised goes to providing treatment, accommodation and support to those in the UK seeking help.
