Soccer Saturday star Chris Kamara and Sky Sports News presenter Julian Warren will go head to head in an 'El Clasico' style clash after being drawn together on Friday's The Fantasy Football Club.
The duo have been in the top two of the Sky Sports league for much of the season, but only one of them will progress to the second round of our knock-out cup competition.
Other eye-catching ties include Jeff Stelling taking on Football League host Simon Thomas, Gary Neville meeting Sky Sports News presenter Natalie Sawyer and Jamie Redknapp facing tennis presenter Marcus Buckland.
Terry Gibson's team of non-Englishmen will face take on the team put together by former England captain Phil Thompson, while rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood faces cricket legend Sir Ian Botham.
And Fenners and Merse's The FantasyFC have a tricky test against Ewenthem - the team managed by Sky Sports golf commentator Ewen Murray.
The cup consists of managers from the Sky Sports talent league and the matches see players go head-to-head to try to achieve the highest weekly score. The winner of the FA Cup-style tournament will take home the coveted trophy later in the season.
