De Niro, Yauch and Matthews field teams for soccer game

A number of teams will go head to head for the five-a-side games as part of the Tribeca/NYFEST soccer tournament in conjunction with the Tribeca Film Festival and the highlight will be a star-studded match on 21 April (12) at Pier 40 in Manhattan.

Beastie Boys star Yauch has registered a team through his Oscilloscope Laboratories film production company, while the Dave Matthews Band star will compete under his ATO Pictures banner.

Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Enterprises will also field a team along with the crew of hit TV cop show Law & Order.

It is not known which famous faces will be taking part in the games, but last year’s (11) tournament was a star-studded affair with Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Anthony Lapaglia and tennis ace John McEnroe all taking part.
