Watch football and help the terror victims

January 07, 2009 19:59 IST

Term it entertainment for a cause, an interaction among fans or just another gathering.

But it definitely is something unprecedented.

That the English Premier League clubs have a massive fan following in Mumbai, or for that matter in India, is an understatement. But coming Sunday, there will probably be a new beginning.

At least, an attempt will be made.

For the first time, fans of the Big Four Premier League clubs -- Liverpool Mumbai, Manchester United Mumbai, Arsenal Mumbai and Chelsea Mumbai -- will come together for a special screening.

The aim is to raise funds for the ones who have suffered the most due to terror attacks on Mumbai in November 2008.

The match in question will be the all-important clash between Chelsea and Manchester United, at present second and third in the table respectively, on Sunday, January 11, 2009. The match starts at 2130 IST.

The surplus generated at the screening would be donated for the said cause.

The venue for the screening is Hotel Avon Ruby, Dadar (East).
