Tonight West Ham United face Reading as the First Round of the Premier League All Stars tournament continues at the All Stars Arena in North Greenwich. Premier League All Stars is a star-studded pro-celebrity charity event screened live on Sky One every night this week. The event is endorsed by all 20 clubs in the top division and is a part of the Premier League’s Creating Chances charity initiative. The prize fund of £300,000 will be distributed among the clubs’ nominated charities.
Each All Stars squad is made up Legends, Celebrities and fans. Ex-players representing West Ham tonight in a very strong side are Tony Cottee, Frank McAvennie, John Moncur and Allen McKnight. Also playing in Claret and Blue are a trio of Brit hardman actors – Danny Dyer, Geoff Bell and Tamer Hassan, while the fans lucky enough to be playing for their club are Julian Hilaire, civil servant and brother of ex- Palace winger Vince, Matthew Crook, an account manager for a publishing company and student Chris Whitelock.
Free tickets are still available for tonight’s game and throughout the rest of the tournament which reaches its climax on Sunday with the Grand Finals night. Details are available from skyone.co.uk/allstars or from the ticket hotline 0871 987 1234.
