Pele takes on Banksy again

Pele takes on Banksy again

One of the more unusual matches ever played at the Brit takes place tomorrow as a Gordon Banks XI takes on a Pele XI in a celebration of Sport for Peace.

The greatest ever keeper and one of the greatest ever players will both manage a host of former players and celebrities in a charity match.

Stoke boss, Tony Pulis will have to play second fiddle to Banksy as he becomes his assistant for the day and the legendary Pele will have the South African Archbishop, Desmond Tutu as his deputy, although his footballing credentials are not as well known.

Pele's first task of the day will be to unveil a statue of Gordon Banks and we're sure that there will be several references to that great save against Pele in the 1970 World Cup match.

The full itinerary for the day is:
11:00 - Gates Open
11:45 - 12:45 - Youth Football Tournament Final
13:10 - Welcome Carnival (clap dance)
13:25 - Live Music (International One)
13:40 - Big Screen (Highlights)
13:50 - Community Flag Parade
14:10 - Statue Unveiling
15:00 - Celebrity Football Match
15:35 - Half Time
15:40 - Live Music (Novello's)
15:55 - Start Second Half
16:30 - Match Finish
16:40 - Live Music (International One)
17:00 - Closing Speeches

Can you give us an idea of when this is happening as there does not appear to be a date on the article.
