Gerrard, Drogba, Fabregas & Villa talk about the A:3K Football Championship (video)

The World Cup isn’t the only competition taking place this summer.

On July 17th at the O2 Arena in London, A:3K will bring six of the world’s greatest footballers to compete and be crowned the first A:3K Football Champion.

According to the promoters, “This exclusive contest will see the players take part in a series of gladiatorial games of skill to discover who will be crowned the first A:3K Football champion. We’ve gathered over £300 million (transfer value) of global football talent to compete for the first time in an arena event and it is an experience not to be missed.”

“A:3K Football have chosen the very best in order to give fans a spectacular football experience in one of the world’s landmark venues. The players will be stripped back to expose their raw talent, while standing alone with no teammates or manger to turn to. They will be competing head to head in a series of skills-based challenges that will test their technique and nerve in ways they have never encountered before. The challenges they will face are A:3K Power, A:3K Precision, A:3K Curve, A:3K Control and A:3K Attack.”

Four football superstars have already committed themselves to taking part, with Liverpool’s Steven Garrard, Chelsea’s Didier Drobga, Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas and Valencia’s David Villa already signed up for the exclusive competition. Rumours are rife also that Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney will complete the six person field.

With such a glitzy competition in the offing, the viral videos are already doing the rounds as the hype begins to escalate.
