TICKETS are still available for an ambitious attempt at a world record which will be taking place in Worcester this May.

Sixways Stadium is the venue for the attempt to break the record for the longest rugby match ever held.

The game, Fire Fighters Charity v Scotty's Little Soldiers, will see the two teams of 23 players going head-to-head for 31 hours of continuous rugby.

Having previously set the Guinness World Record by playing for 24 hours, the teams of firefighters and forces personnel will hope to claim back the world record title at Sixways Stadium.

The match is considered the ultimate endurance challenge as if players become injured, they can not be replaced.

Alan Knell, from the Firefighters Charity, said: "The game has already seen more than £25,000 raised for both The Fire Fighters charity and Scotty’s Little Soldiers, and we hope to raise lots more for injured firefighters and kids that have lost parents in the Armed Forces.

"There is a huge after party at the stadium. This is also open to the general public, with a huge auction, raffle, live music and of course the legends."

The game kicks off at 8am on Friday, May 12.

Entry on the gate will be available with a donation.
