AMP, or Any Means Possible (Agent 00 / Din Muktar, ChrisNxtDoor / Chris, Duke Dennis Gaming / Duke Dennis, ImDavisss / Davis, Kai Cenat and JustFanum / Roberto) includes six content creators who have revolutionised the YouTube landscape. 

Kai Cenat, with his magnetic personality and boundless creativity, serves as the driving force behind AMP’s success, as the all-time most-subscribed Twitch streamer and the 10th most followed Twitch streamer in the world. His original style of content has garnered a massive following and solidified his reputation as one of the most influential figures on YouTube.

Speaking of the upcoming match, Beta Squad’s Niko Omilana said:

“We’re ready to play! Going head-to-head with AMP is going to be an unforgettable experience that we hope our fans enjoy. Knowing how bad AMP are at football, we wanted to even things up so AMP’s mystery player is a current professional footballer who is set to make the match go down in history. Being able to bring everyone together for a great cause (The Water Project) and have all the support from our fans, makes us even more excited.”

In an exciting twist, the AMP team will feature a ‘mystery player’— a current professional footballer with Premier League and Champions League experience. This disguised player will be masked the entire match to keep his identity a secret, joining some of the biggest online creators from around the world, collectively showcasing to a following of hundreds of millions of fans. 

The charity football match, scheduled for 16:00 BST, is set to be a memorable day in YouTube history, with all proceeds from the event going towards supporting The Water Project, ensuring that the impact of this event extends far beyond the football pitch.
