Saturday-s Phoenix v Adelaide United Hyundai A-League match at Eden Park won-t be the only much anticipated football match of the weekend.

Kicking off at 5.45pm, the inaugural Celebrity Curtain Raiser match will precede the “big game”, although the big talk circulating from some players would suggest the night-s action will take place before the professional football kicks off!

With two former All Whites- as captains, you would be forgiven for mistaking the “social” nature of the game, with serious bragging rights at stake.

Led by former All White Danny Hay, “Danny-s Boys” will face Noah Hickey-s “Hickey-s Heroes” in what promises to be an good warm up for the Phoenix game at 7.30pm.

With the final line ups to be confirmed just before kick off, and pending any late scratchings, the two Celebrity Curtain Raiser teams are:
