Organisers of next Thursday's Reunification Cup have insured the 36 star players for $132 million dollars, although conservative estimates put their combined worth at $500 million. The event organisers, the Sport Community for Celebration of Reunification of Hong Kong with China (SCCRHKC), have been negotiating with a German-based company over the premium for the insurance coverage. The FIFA World All-Stars will play the Asian All-Stars at the Hong Kong Stadium as part of the celebrations to mark the territory's return to Chinese sovereignty. Around 36 players have confirmed their participation in the extravaganza, though the World All-Stars squad has yet to be finalised. Alexandre Rego of the SCCRHKC said the insurance coverage for each player would be around $3.6 million. 'We are required by FIFA to buy insurance for all the players. We are using the insurance coverage for the FIFA All-Stars in last July's exhibition in New York as a reference,' said Rego. 'The insurance covers life, medical treatment and loss of luggage.' Rego added that organisers were trying to confirm the last couple of players for the World All-Stars squad. Brazilian free-kick sensation Roberto Carlos is expected to give his answer today. The organisers are confident that the Real Madrid left-back will accept the invitation to play here. 'FIFA president Joao Havelange has spoken to Real Madrid and the Brazilian Football Association, whose president is Havelange's son-in-law,' said Rego. 'Havelange is keen to see Carlos playing here because he knows Hong Kong people love Brazilian soccer. 'If Carlos agrees to come, he will be arriving with his national teammate, Carlos Dunga, next Wednesday.' Eric Cantona, the brilliant former Manchester United captain who retired last month, has also been invited and he is expected to reveal his decision tomorrow. Rego said German soccer supremo Franz Beckenbauer and former French ace Michel Platini, co-president of the World Cup 98 organising committee, had been negotiating with Cantona. Two more Brazilians have also been lined up to replace Inter Milan's Nigerian international Taribo West, who has pulled out of the World All-Stars squad. French international striker Patrice Loko of Paris Saint Germain has also volunteered to play and is awaiting FIFA's invitation. Meanwhile, security at the Hong Kong Stadium will be tight for the game as Chief Executive-designate Tung Chee-hwa has been invited to attend. Spectators, including VIPs, have been warned that they must produce their tickets when entering the stadium. Tickets at $500, $300, $200 and $100 are now on sale at the stadium and the Hong Kong Football Association headquarters.
