Following their gruelling clash in the ‘Battle of the Backsides’ for Sport Relief 2014, footballing legends Alan Shearer and Robbie Savage are back for a rematch of epic proportions.
This time it’s serious and they’re calling on you to join them as they go head-to-head once more for the BBC Radio 5 live ‘Battle of the Five-A-Sides’ for Sport Relief.
It’s a huge three-day event that will see Alan and Robbie each player-manage a squad, with over 1,000 people taking part to play a combined total of 57 hours of continuous five-a-side football – the equivalent of playing an entire Premier League season.
The teams will play on constant rotation on the Premier League Five-A-Side Stadium at Media City Salford, Manchester from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 5th March.
Supported by the Premier League, with broadcast coverage led by BBC Radio 5 live, this battle has one goal – to raise much-needed cash for Sport Relief. And you can be part of it!
