Soccer and models.

Sounds like a win-win.

On Nov. 17, you can experience both during the first annual Celebrity Beach Soccer Match.

Presented by GACP Sports in partnership with the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, the fundraiser will feature a 7 x 7 exhibition match with celebrities, athletes and (yep) swimsuit stunners, all to benefit Best Buddies.

Confirmed participants include such SI hotties as Kate Bock, Myla Dalbesio, Hunter McGrady, Samantha Hoopes, Camille Kostek, Jasmyn Wilkins and the newly single Olivia Culpo. The ladies have been Down Under in Australia shooting, but they’ll  be ready to play in South Florida next month.

LA Galaxy’s Landon Donovan is also set to be on board for the fun (and add some athletic cred).

The game starts beach side at 11 a.m. at 2201 Collins Avenue in South Beach where participants will gather for a friendly.

As for tickets, “Fashionably Early” specials are available until Saturday with General Admission at $50 and VIP at $200; www.worldfutbolgala.com.
