Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been confirmed as a participant in July’s A:3K Football tournament, in which six of the world’s best players will compete in a series of gladiatorial games of skill at the 02 Arena.
The footie stars will battle it out in a tournament testing their skills in front of a huge live audience and millions of TV viewers.
A:3K – which stands for Arena 3000 – involves five “gladiatorial” soccer challenges which will be staged on a black pitch against the backdrop of a hi-tech set, above.
The aim is to determine which player is the most skilful, with the A:3K hero crowned being crowned at the end.
Fabregas, 22, told The Sun:
“It is a very good opportunity to play individually against some of the best players in the world.”
