5 reasons why you should definitely watch the Wembley Cup

From new formats to seeing some childhood heroes - the Wembley Cup is a must see this year

This Sunday is the fourth edition of the Wembley Cup and this year promises to be the best of the lot.

The games will be live at Wembley Stadium from 2pm.

Here are five reasons why you should definitely make the trip to the home of football this weekend.

1 – The Legends

We will see some seriously nostalgic heroes gracing the Wembley pitch this Sunday.

David Trezeguet, Cafu, Robert Pires and Michael Essien will represent one of the four teams each.

We never saw Trezeguet in the Premier League and this may be one of the last chances you get to see the silky Frenchman play live.

Cafu is a Brazilian hero, who – like Trezeguet – never played in England, so it is a pleasure to have him on board.

Arsenal and Chelsea fans need no added incentive to see their respective legends in action one last time.

2 – Your favourite Youtubers are playing

How will the F2 fare at Spurs’ and England’s ground?

Yep, from the F2 Freestylers to Chris MD, the internet sensations will have to prove themselves once again on the big stage.

Others include FIFA Manny, Sean Garnier and Joe Weller.

While it is easy to upload videos of themselves making them out to be half-decent players, there will be no tampering or editing on Sunday and you can find out first hand if these guys have any game.

3 – Two members from Dream Team are playing

A couple of the Dream Team lads are in there.

That’s right, for the past 18 months our very own James Robinson and Rory Harper have been members of the Rebel FC squad.

Naturally we’ll be getting behind Calfreezy’s boys for this reason, but Rebel are really ones to watch and are hitting the big time.

A year and a half ago Rebel didn’t exist – now they’ve got signed by Under Armour and have even got a deal with Utilita Energy.
The lads are doing bits.

4 – New rules

The ref will have a hard time keeping up

They have really thrown the rule book out this year.

There will be two semi-finals lasting 30 minutes followed by a final of the same length.

If the match ends as a draw, the game will go to extra-time with the teams involved losing a player every minute

There will be sin bins instead of yellow cards so the referee will certainly have his hands full.

5 – It is for charity

A lot cheaper than a visit here
