Kasabian will line-up alongside ex-Leicester City footballers and former England rugby captain Martin Johnson in a charity football match this Sunday (July 28).

Bass player Chris Edwards will lead out a team representing the band in the charity event this weekend which will raise money a charity set up in the memory of a teenage fan of the band who died suddenly while out jogging. The Kasabian XI will take on a team made up of former Leicester City players, including midfield player Muzzy Izzet at the Quorn Football Club's Farley Way Stadium.

Joe Humphries, 14, collapsed a few minutes from his home in Rothley in October, a victim of sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) – the adult version of cot death. His family has since created the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust to promote awareness of the condition.

Speaking to This Is Leicestershire about the charity and Humphries illness, Kasabian's Edwards says: "Losing someone with so much potential as Joe at such a young age has been heart-breaking for his family and friends. But the work they have done in such a short time since his death has been inspirational. Sads is something everyone should know about and the more people trained to act when someone's heart stops beating, the more lives can be saved. We're hoping for a big crowd and the Kasabian All-Stars will be going all out for a win."

Admission to the game, which will kick off at 2pm, is by donation, with a minimum £3 suggested for adults and under-fives free. See the Joe Humphries Memorial Trust website.
