Gareth Bale, Paulo Dybala And Premier League Stars Start FIFA 20 Livestream To Combat Corona
Let's face it: there's no football to watch - so 'Super Sunday' now means seeing elite players go head-to-head on FIFA 20, while helping a magnificent cause.
The Combat Corona livestream is being backed by some of the world's best footballers, including Gareth Bale and Paulo Dybala, to raise money for UNICEF.
On Sunday, from 4pm UK time, an epic six-hour livestream begins as players test their FIFA 20 skills against each other. With Mason Mount, Dan James, Kieran Tierney and more joining Bale and Dybala, this is the closest we're all going to get to, say, Man United vs Arsenal or Real Madrid vs Juventus for a while.
As the official social media partner, SPORTbible will provide updates and highlights from Sunday onward.
Let's beat #Coronavirus!
We will be hosting a FIFA 20 charity stream to raise funds for those in need.
So far, @garethbale11 @lukeshaw23 @Daniel_James_97 @jpickford1 @masonmount_10 @rubey_lcheek @billygilmourrr @calvertlewin14 @kierantierney are involved.

"During this difficult time, I want to give back and try to help in any way I can," said Bale. "Combat Corona is a great initiative that hopefully helps the fight against coronavirus and at the same time, entertains those who are unable to leave their homes.
"If we all do our part, we can beat this together."
He says that now, wait until he's 3-0 down at half-time and insisting everyone switches from FIFA to Rory McIlroy: PGA Tour.
As well as watching the action unfold, you can get involved with live Q&As - and win football and gaming prizes in exclusive giveaways.
Global broadcast is on twitch.com/38entertainment - with hosts including Castro and Spencer Owen. Jordan Pickford, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Luke Shaw and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are all set to play.
Every football fan is welcome to watch the players win/fail, while donating to a worthy cause. Combat Corona is supporting UNICEF, who are helping to minimise the impact of coronavirus on children and families by supplying vital medical equipment, tackling misinformation and supporting health, education and social services worldwide.
A vital cause we can all get behind - and all you need to get started is sit and watch live FIFA 20 action on Sunday afternoon. Absolute bliss.
