Chile kick-off world record attempt for 120 hour soccer match

Thousands of Chileans, including professional and amateur soccer players are aiming to break Guinness record for longest soccer match ever. 

The effort includes a combination of professional and amateur players. The total number of expected participants is around 3,000. 

Guinness World Record authorities have travelled to Chile where on Tuesday the country began its attempt at taking the title for the world's longest soccer match.

Soccer fanatics will take over the Bicentenary Stadium de la Florida in Santiago over five days, where soccer fanatics hope to play a solid 120 hours.

The effort includes a combination of professional and amateur players. The total number of expected participants is around 3,000.

Playing two halves of 60 minutes, with each player on the pitch for at least an hour, Chile hopes to beat the 2015 record currently held by Scotland for a 105-hour match. The non-professionals were mindful of their unique opportunity.

A total of 3,800 free places were offered for online inscription for men and women over the age of 16.

The record is pegged to wrap up by Sunday.
