The Premier League has been suspended indefinitely since last month as the Coronavirus pandemic continues to affect Britain, leaving the players stuck inside like everyone else as they await the return of football at some stage in the future.
Featuring the likes of Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold, Manchester City’s Sterling, Wolves‘ Diego Jota, and Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, the tournament will take place over five days, with all games being broadcast live by Sky Sports in the UK and also streamed online worldwide.
The prize fund is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative, which was created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service (NHS) and distributing them where they are needed most.
“The thoughts of everyone at the Premier League are with all those directly affected by COVID-19,” said Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters.
He added, “In response to the pandemic, the League, our clubs and players are providing valuable support for communities and the NHS.
The opening rounds will feature four matches a day between 12:00 and 16:00 BST from Tuesday, 21 April through to Friday, 24 April. The semi-finals and final will then take place at 15:00 BST on Saturday, April 25.
