Play will be continuous from 9.15am on Thursday 3rd  March until 6.15pm on Saturday 5th  March, with teams and individuals rolling on and off throughout.

Each game will last 30 minutes with 15 minute halves. Many famous names from the worlds of sport and entertainment are taking part. The Battle of the Five-a-Sides will kick off in /BBC Breakfast/ and the final whistle will be blown during /606/ on Radio 5 Live.
