SINGAPORE - Football fans in Singapore can now stand a chance to play alongside English Premier League greats Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs.

The Britons will be in town next month for the five-a-side CF Cup 2017.

The tournament is open to all amateur players and interested participants will have to form a team of eight players and register at www.cfcup.sg.

Participating teams will play in qualifying rounds on April 1-2. The finals on April 8 will then see the top two teams, captained by the two Manchester United legends, face off against each other.

The CF Cup 2017 is part of the grand opening of The Arena on April 8-9. The venue, at 48 Woodleigh Park, is Singapore's latest lifestyle and family-oriented destination, offering a wide variety of sports and fitness facilities for all ages, including the Cafe Football Singapore.

The football-themed restaurant, which was established in the United Kingdom by Neville and Giggs, is the first franchise in Asia.
