A charity soccer game at Giants Stadium next month that supposed to feature such stars as Cristiano Ronaldo and Thierry Henry has been scrapped because of a lack of corporate sponsors.

The 'All-Stars for Hope' charity match, initially scheduled for June 14, hoped to raise money for the Schools for Hope Foundation, which is run by Arsenal player Mikaël Silvestre.

Organizers said the match was going to include Ronaldo, Henry, Ryan Giggs, Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba, Emmanuel Adebayor, Bacary Sagna, Claude Makélélé, Gaël Clichy and Patrick Viera.
