Zerkaa speaking after the announcement said: “This is a major milestone for us.
“When we first set up this event back in 2016, we never thought we’d be playing in a stadium of over 62,000 people. Not only are we able to give back to our loyal fans, but being able to raise further funds for charities that are so close to our hearts give us a lot to be proud and thankful for.
“We can’t wait to see all of you in September.”
