Raising money for Norwich City's charity the Community Sports Foundation (CSF), the Carrow Road fixture is now in its fourth year.

It is called Jamie's Game in honour of CSF ambassador Jamie Abbott, who has Down's Syndrome, and has raised more than £200,000 to date.

Spectators can expect a competitive match featuring stars of TV, music, film, and sport, as well as several ex-Canaries.

TV's Calum Best and YouTube star Jim Chapman will each be the captains this year, and their teams will feature a number of surprise players to be announced in the build-up to the big day.

Former Canary Darren Eadie, founder of Sellebrity, which auctions off celebrity memorabilia for charity, has helped to organise the event.

'We've had three brilliant days at Carrow Road with previous Jamie's Games,' he said. 'Norwich has turned out in force every time and each event has been better than the last.
