Legends ready to take on Hong Kong's finest at Soccer Sevens....Day 1



13 Former Pro Premiership footballers hit the ground in hong Kong to take on the Soccer 7's Tournament.

The Playon team met up with World Cup winner Marcel Desailly and a host of other players before they pulled their boots on. The Playon Team line up includes; Emile Heskey,  David James,  Darren Bent, Marlon Harewood, John Arne Riise,  Don Hutchinson, Yari Litmanen, Matt Jansen, Frank Sinclair, George Boateng,  Michael Brown, Michael Gray, Peter Reid and Viv Anderson.

Playon Pro, which aims to assist and help professional athletes in their retirement, had bought the most iconic team of former players to the tournament. Fans littered the team hotel lobby, waiting to get a glimpse of the players and the Playon squad gladly had photos and met with the local fans.   

After adjusting to the time difference the players attended the Hong Kong 7's Gala dinner where they met their competition they would face on the pitch. The Playon team received numerous accolades for assembling the squad full of legends from the game - now it is time to see if they can deliver on the pitch.

Stayed tuned to Playon Pro to see all the behind the scenes action!
