Leyton Orient inspire 128-team FIFA 20 tournament
Manchester City, Ajax, and Roma are among teams around the world to sign up to event organised by the League Two outfit.
The impromptu tournament has been announced in response to the postponement of professional soccer leagues around the world due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Applying some ingenuity, Leyton Orient challenged 63 other teams to join them in the knock-out tournament online, and have attracted more than double that number since posting the invite online.
Each club will enter their own representative player. Though the majority of teams have not announced who will take part just yet, English top-flight club Crystal Palace have confirmed that midfielder Andros Townsend will be taking part on behalf of the Premier League outfit.
