Which way are our footballing heroes voting in the EU referendum?

Yep, you’re right, there is no reason to having Will Grigg as the header image above. Unless the reason was to name drop him, so I could now include this video…


Anyway, now to the reason why we are here. For some daft reason, us general public have been given the power to decide something so important as to whether the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union.

You can tell a lot about a person from which way they vote, and you can also pretty much predict correctly which way people will be voting – basically you’ve got to ask are they more of a ‘Juan Mata’ or a ‘Jamie Vardy’?

So, ahead of the big decision, we thought it might help you to see which way some of the footballing elite -and David James – are voting.

David Beckham – Bremain For Life

You know those lists you make with your partner about ‘Three people you’re allowed to cheat on them with’? Well, mine is her sister, Hilary Duff and David Beckham.

I’m passionate about my country and whatever the result of Thursday’s referendum, we will always be Great. Each side has the right to their opinion and that should always be respected whatever the outcome of the European Referendum. I played my best years at my boyhood club, Manchester United. I grew up with a core group of young British players that included Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and the Neville Brothers. Added to that was an experienced group of older British players such as Gary Pallister, Steve Bruce and Paul Ince. Now that team might have gone on to win trophies but we were a better and more successful team because of a Danish goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel, the leadership of an Irishman Roy Keane and the skill of a Frenchman in Eric Cantona. I was also privileged to play and live in Madrid, Milan and Paris with teammates from all around Europe and the world. Those great European cities and their passionate fans welcomed me and my family and gave us the opportunity to enjoy their unique and inspiring cultures and people. We live in a vibrant and connected world where together as a people we are strong. For our children and their children we should be facing the problems of the world together and not alone. For these reasons I am voting to Remain

Sol Campbell – Brexit

I interviewed Sol Campbell recently. And all I’ll say is it’s no surprise to me he’s voting to leave.

Rio Ferdinand – Vote To Stay

No nonsense defender, taking no nonsense when it comes to voting in the referendum.

David James – Vote To Leave

England were never in safe hands when David James was in goal. And it sounds like we wouldn’t be in safe hands if Jammo was Prime Minister, too.

John Barnes – Vote To Stay

Peak Vote Leave campaign.
