Gareth Bale commits to Celebrity Cup

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale will play in the Celebrity Cup at Celtic Manor on 4-5 July.

The world’s most expensive footballer will compete for a Welsh team captained by comedian Rob Brydon, and featuring rugby legend Sir Gareth Edwards.

“I’m looking forward to pulling on a Wales shirt of the different kind in July and competing in the Celebrity Cup for the first time, hopefully we can win it back from England,” said Bale.
