Over 60,000 fans have packed out the ground to watch popular YouTube group the Sidemen – featuring KSI – take on the YouTube All Stars.

talkSPORT host Mark Goldbridge is even involved in the event, with the Manchester United fan and talkSPORT host drafted in to be the All-Stars’ manager.

Prior to kick-off, it was announced that KSI and Paul have donated £250k.

Meanwhile rapper JME, who was playing left-back for the Sidemen, donated £37.5k.

And prior to the game even starting, the match had raised over £1m.

Last year’s clash at Charlton’s The Valley raised more than £2m, with the Sidemen emerging as winners in an enthralling 8-7 encounter.

Despite his fight against Tommy Fury on the horizon, KSI still decided to take part.

Though he elected to start between the sticks in goal to reduce his chances of getting injured.
