Doncaster One Direction star Louis Tomlinson is set to pull on his football boots once more for charity.

The boy band sensation will partner up with his band mate Niall Horan in a charity football challenge next month.

Derby County fan Niall is behind the game which is scheduled to take place on Monday, May 26, at the King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City Football Club.

Niall’s team are set to take on former Derby County captain Robbie Savage’s team.

The two star-studded teams will both have high-profile celebrities from England and the rest of the world and top-class footballers and legends of the sport.

All proceeds from the match, called The Niall Horan Charity Football Challenge, will go to Mullingar based charity Irish Autism Action (IAA) and UK Heart and Minds Challenge.

Confirmed and joining Niall on his team so far are bandmates Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, singer Olly Murs, Robbie Fowler, Rod Stewart, Jason McAteer and ambassador for IAA Keith Duffy.

The full team line-ups will be announced by the end of this month.

The gates will open at 1.30pm and kick-off will be at 3pm.

Under-14s must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.
