Later this month, Niall will manage a football team featuring Liam and Louis, in aid of the Irish Autism Action charity.

Niall’s team will take on a rival group of players, led by journalist and chat show host Piers Morgan.

So, alongside Niall, Liam, Louis and Piers, what other famous faces will we see?

Well, alongside previously confirmed names such as ex-footballers Robbie Savage and Jimmy Bullard, and star of 1980s band Spandau Ballet, Martin Kemp, there have been even more new players announced.

Yesterday, hilarious comedian Jack Whitehall revealed on Twitter: “I’m playing for @NiallOfficial team at this charity football match”

Niall also added another ex-professional footballer to his said. Event manager Gary Keating tweeted: “Another signing @NiallOfficial offers @Mark5Wright a one day contract. In the words of @piersmorgan BOOM.”

Niall’s team is getting stronger and stronger… Not only has he got some new players onside, but he’s also recruited an assistant manager – none other than 1D music video director Ben Winston!

Niall tweeted: “yes piers the rumours are true! @benwinston is making a return to management and will be my assistant manager on the day!”

The match takes place on 26th May 2014 at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, UK.

Anyway, Niall is currently with One Direction in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil on the “Where We Are” tour. Surely in between performing he’s seeing all the sites? Well, it appears not.

Sadly, Niall tweeted: “Would love to have a look around rio! Doubt it will happen to be fair haha! #tourlife”.
