The Foundation’s Disability Dance troupe, who are one of the groups who benefit from the funds raised for the charity match, will also be showing off their routines to the crowd at half-time.
Emma Fletcher, CSF Charity Fundraiser Officer, said: “We’re delighted to have Bradley Waterman headlining our entertainment bill. Jamie’s Game isn’t just about the match, it’s about the whole day. As a young, talented local singer – who has nationwide appeal after his run on The Voice – he is the perfect fit for Jamie’s Game.
“We’re very grateful to him for agreeing to give up his time to play and we’re confident that he’ll be a big hit with the crowd.”
This year’s celebrity lineup includes the likes of Calum Best, YouTubers Jim Chapman & Marcus Butler, CBB’s James Hill and X-men actor Ben Hardy, as well as a number of former Norwich City stars.
Over £200,000 has been raised from the annual match since it debuted in 2013, and it is run in partnership with former Canary Darren Eadie’s events and auction company, Sellebrity.
