Join us for #MusclesMatchdaySelfie!

Are you missing football, or just sport in general? We are too! We’ve got just the thing to give you your football/sporting fix – led by MDUK ambassador; West Ham United and England midfielder, Jack Wilshere.

At Muscular Dystrophy UK we know that muscles matter, from every ball that our football stars kick, to every clap and cheer that fans make for their favourite team. We plan to recreate the feeling of teamwork and togetherness and recapture that spirit which is being so sorely missed right now by filling the internet with pictures of people representing their team, all to help the 70,000 people in the UK who live with muscle wasting conditions.

Absolutely anyone can get involved; and it couldn’t be easier! Rules below:


1. Don your favourite football shirt

2. Take a selfie and share it on your social media with the hashtag #MusclesMatchdaySelfie.

Don’t forget to tag us in your post:

3. Donate £5 one of the following ways:

  • Text MDUK5 to 70660 to donate £5
  • Donate £5 (or what you’d usually spend on a match day) to our JustGiving page

4. Share a screenshot of the completed donation to Muscular Dystrophy UK with your post.

5. Nominate and tag 5 friends for your ‘5-a-side-team’ to do the same.

Our ‘goal’ and why it’s so important:

We are facing a £2.8m funding gap due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is half of our annual income. Our information and advocacy services are needed more than ever as those we support are in the most vulnerable category during COVID-19.

Post your #MusclesMatchdaySelfie, donate your £5 (or what you’d usually spend on a match day) and help us to continue to support those that really need us during this crisis and beyond.

Show your support today:

  1. Text MDUK5 to 70660 to donate £5
  2. Donate £5 (of what you’d usually spend on a match day!) by heading to our JustGiving page.
