44 players and 500 spectators have taken to the Riverside Stadium this afternoon.
It's part of a charity event to raise over £10,000 for both South Tees Renal Unit & Islamic Relief's work in Syria. Organisers said they wanted to help those in the local area, and those with acute needs abroad.
"Without the South Tees Renal unit, my late father would not have received the care and support that prolonged his life and gave us the opportunity to share so many precious moments.
It is impossible to express the gratitude we all feel, but I hope the money raised can go some way towards expressing how much the unit means to the people of Middlesbrough"
Islamic Relief is operating inside Syria and it provides support for civilians trapped by the on-going conflict.
Since the conflict began, Islamic relief says they have helped over 6.5 million people inside the country, and delivered an estimated £30 million in aid.
