Robert Plant Bids To Play For Favorite Soccer Team

Robert Plant is prepping for his soccer debut, as he's set to suit up for his favorite team, the Wolverhampton Wanderers, in a testimonial match for defender Jody Craddock, who retired last year.

Plant, the vice president of the club, won the opportunity by bidding $1,450 at a dinner to raise money for Birmingham Children's Hospital, where Craddock's son is being treated for leukemia.

According to BBC Sport, Plant will now take part in next year's testimonial match for the 38-year-old. The match will also raise funds for Craddock.

Former manager Mick McCarthy was also said to have been in attendance at the event, which welcomed 280 guests and raised over $12,000. According to Ultimate Classic Rock, Plant has followed the team since he was a young boy.
