    Sport Relief 2016- Battle of the Five-A-Sides

    BBC and Sport Relief announce that footballing legends Alan Shearer and Robbie Savage are going head-to-head once again as part of the epic BBC Radio 5 live 'Battle of the Five-A-Sides' for Sport Relief 2016. Supported by the Premier League, the three day five-a-side football frenzy will see Alan and Robbie return to the pitch to play as well as manage a squad of players. Over 1,000 people will take part to play a combined total of 57 hours of continuos football- the equivalent of playing an entire Premier League season for one club. Robbie will be representing BBC Radio 5 Live, whilst Alan is taking part on behalf of BBC's Match of the Day.

    The two teams, led by the football heroes, will play on constant rotation on the Premier League five-a-side stadium at MediaCityUK from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 5th March. The Premier League has funded the cost of the pitch as part of their bigger commitment to funding football facilities throughout the UK.

    The goal of the game is to raise much-needed cash for Sport Relief that will make a difference to people living incredibly tough lives, both here at home in the UK and across the world's poorest communities. Along with members of the public, the pair will be joined throughout the three days by a rolling cast of well-known names from the world of sport and entertainment and many different types of football will be played including men's, women's, kids, wheelchair, walking and even crab football.
