Back at The Valley 25th Anniversary Celebrations
The 25th Anniversary Committee is an independent committee organising a range of events over the 2017/18 season to celebrate two special anniversaries: Charlton Athletic’s return to The Valley and the launch of the community scheme that became Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT). The funds raised from all the events will support CACT’s work at the heart of the community.
Thank you to everyone who came to Legends United and helped raise over £30,000 for CACT. Fans and players alike had a great day. Read the full match report here.
Back at The Valley 25th Anniversary Game – 9th December
This will be a really special day, with Charlton taking on Portsmouth in an echo of the first game back at The Valley in December 1992.
The committee has invited a host of legends from the 1992/93 season and the last 25 years back to attend the game, and fans will have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A session with them in the Fans Bar at 1pm. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis.
To celebrate this anniversary, and to recognise the important work that CACT has been doing across South East London and Kent over the last 25 years, the Club is donating 25% of home ticket revenue from the game along with 25% of match day programme sales to the charity.

As with all 25th Anniversary events, the dinner will be raising funds for the Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), which is also celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch of the community scheme.
