    Fan favourites

    As the lineups were being read out by the stadium announcer there was huge applause for two names in particular.

    Those being Wroetoshaw and IShowSpeed.

    Two huge names who will be set for big performances in today's game.

    Will Harry be able to find the target? We know his accuracy can be a little off the mark, if you ask his mum she will agree.

    Or will IShowSpeed be able to get vengeance for his offside goal last time out?

    We are about to find out.

    Pre-match prep

    The players have headed into the tunnel for their final team talks before we get the game underway.

    There are some pre-game inflatables going up, and a Champions League-esque banner in the middle of the pitch.

    This really feels like a big occasion and the Sidemen have stepped it up a level this year for sure.

    Sidemen FC looking well drilled

    Sidemen FC definitely look the better organised of the two teams out there on the pitch.

    They are currently doing a shooting drill against KSI in goal, with Angry Ginge, Randolph and Vikkstar testing the keeper.

    Some deadly shooters in there…

    Behzinga on playing at the London Stadium

    “It’s definitely a dream come true for us to play our charity match at a stadium of this

    The journey we have been on with this event since 2016 has been crazy, and the support we received last year showed to us that we were ready to take the game up a level.

    We’re delighted to play in front of a sold out London Stadium and it fills us all with pride to be able to raise even more money for some very important charities.”

    Speed hits the SEWYYYY

    IShowSpeed is here warming up on the pitch, he sprints to the corner flag straight away, and sends the fans wild by hitting his infamous Ronaldo-inspired SEWY.

    It echoes around the stadium too.

    LIVE from the London Stadium

    WE are here at the London Stadium with just half an hour until the game gets underway.

    Anticipation in the stadium is building, the players are warming up and it is a baking hot summers day here in London.

    Goalkeeper KSI is being warmed up by teammate on the day Angry Ginge – and let's just say he has let in a few howlers.

    Expect a high scoring game…

  • By Matt Penn


    KSI confirms he's in goal for today's game, owing to his fight with Tommy Fury on October 14.

    He says he has a higher chance of knocking Fury out without an injury.

    Opposites attract

    Though they're on opposite sides today, KSI and IShowSpeed were filmed sitting on the bus next to each other on the way to the game.

    Something tells me they won't be so friendly once the game starts.

    What happened last time?

    Last year's game was a manic one as Sidemen FC came out on top 8-7 in a 15-goal thriller.

    Sidemen's Miniminter bagged a hat-trick as YouTube's IShowSpeed stole the show with some of his entertaining antics.

    KSI was also hilariously slide tackled to the ground within seconds of the game starting.

    But with his big fight against Tommy Fury coming up, KSI has decided not to risk injury and will play this game IN GOAL.

    Well, all the usual suspects. But here's a full list for you.
