Celador event set to honour football stars

Celador Music and Events is to stage an inaugural FIFPro World XI Player Awards to honour the best eleven footballers from across the globe.

The announcement comes after 38,000 professional footballers belonging to the 40 organisations that form the world body FIFPro voted for their 'super team' last month.

An invited audience of 1,500 guests will attend the ceremony at Wembley Conference and Exhibition Centre on 19 September and see four defenders, four midfielders, two strikers and one goalkeeper rewarded. Three further awards for the overall World XI Player of the Year, the World XI Legend award and the Young Player of the Year, as voted for by fans, will also be presented.

The event will be broadcast to an estimated television audience of 300 million.
