Famous names involved include ex-footballers Peter Shilton, Michael Owen, Glenn Hoddle,Sir Geoff Hurst, Martin Keown, Gary Mabbutt, Gary Pallister, Carlton Palmer, Kenny Sansom, David Seaman, Dion Dublin, plus pop stars Katy B, Emma Bunton Pixie Lott, Mel C, Eliza Doolittle, Conor Maynard and Kimberley Walsh. The video will make its debut on March 21, with all proceeds from the single going to Sport Relief. The single will not be released until nearer the tournament in June.
The promo was filmed at Sarm Studios in west London, where the 1984 Band Aid single was also recorded.
