Staff and students at Dundee College are attempting to make into into the Guinness book of records by taking part in the the longest five-a-side football game ever.
A total of 16 players have been in training for months in anticipation of playing five-a-side non-stop for 48 hours.
The mega match, which aims to raise funds for Dreamz4U, a charity which endeavours to grant the wishes of sick children and those with disabilities started at 8am on Friday and will finish at 8am on Sunday.
A mixture of staff and students representing a variety of areas across Dundee College are taking part with each participant having to stay on their feet and play football for at least 30 hours out of the 48.
Jeff Imrie, a engineering lecturer at the college, has organised the event. At 52 Mr Imrie is also the oldest player taking part.
He said: "The present record stands at 40 hours so we have set ourselves the challenge of 48 hours minimum. We had a practice 12-hour session a few weeks ago and I lost 8lbs so, much as I'd like to see the Sunday deadline come and go and us all still playing, it's maybe a big ask but I believe we can do it. Actually my main aim is to be still on my feet on Sunday at 8am.
"Luckily college is closed for jubilee celebrations on Monday so all of the guys have a chance to recover."
Organisers have worked out a complex rota which means that no player can ever be playing for more than three hours straight but, on the down side, the longest break that any player can have on the sidelines is just two hours.
Mechanical engineering student Jordan Creagh, 18, said: "We've been training really hard, getting up at 5am three times a week. The atmosphere and camaraderie among the guys is great and we're really hoping to break the record."
Jeff is hoping the team will raise at least £5000 for the charity.
