Egamer Liam headed to Wembley to support official charity partner

13 November 2017

One of our official charity partners, Special Effect, were at Wembley Stadium on Friday to reveal they now have their very own football kit in the FIFA 18 Ultimate Team.

Players can earn the in-game kit by completing a new weekly FUT challenge. On top of that, a very limited number of the jerseys have been made in real life and will be auctioned off by the charity.

Special Effect were founded in 2007 and help people with physical disabilities by using specific technology to help them play video games. Northampton Town Chairman Kelvin Thomas is one of their patrons and Northampton Town's own egamer, Liam Merry, otherwise known as REAPERZz and supported by Trapp'd, went down to Wembley to mark the launch.

Special Effect visit people up and down the country to figure out what technology is needed to help users play the games they want to play before they customise or create equipment specific to that person's needs and lend it to them. All of this is done free of charge.

Special Effect say that not only are they bringing joy to many lives but they are also: 'bringing families and friends together and having a profoundly positive impact on therapy, confidence and rehabilitation.'

You can support Special Effect's work by donating through their website.
