FORMER national team mainstays Stephan Schrock, Roland Muller and Anton del Rosario will join an all-star seven-a-side team from Southeast Asia for the TST $1 Million Winner Takes All tournament  set in North Carolina in the US from June 1 to 4.

The ex-Azkals Schrock, Muller and del Rosario will join former captains Mark Klock of Indonesia and Faiq Bolkiah of Brunei, as well as ex-Thailand national team member Charyl Chappuis on the Far East United squad that will vie in the 32-team event.

Among the noted teams that will see action include a club owned by former American national team and World Cup player Clint Dempsey, a squad backed by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney who own British club Wrexham United and a team owned by celebrities Eva Longoria, National Basketball Association stars Shawn Marion and Rip Hamilton, former Germany and Real Madrid star Mesut Ozil and baseball ace Justin Verlander.

β€œAs you can see, seven-a-side football has received a lot of attention outside the football community,” said del Rosario, president of the AIA 7s Football tournament and a founder of the Asia 7s.

β€œThe participation of the teams owned by Clint Demspey, Eva Longoria, Ryan Reynolds, and others will bring attention to this fast growing sport,” he said. β€œIt’s going to be four days of intense but fun competition in what will be the World Cup of seven-a-side football.”

The tournament will be broadcast live on ESPN.
