Sylvester Stallone will deliver a special message via video link at a British soccer ground on Monday (19Jan15) to encourage a crowd of thousands as they take part in a scene for his new Rocky movie.

A film crew is to shoot footage of fans at English Premier League club Everton's match against West Bromwich Albion for use in Stallone's upcoming boxing movie Creed.

The actor will speak to the crowd in a video to be screened at Everton's Goodison Park stadium at half-time to encourage them to be as vocal as possible for the footage.

The stunt has been set up by British boxer Tony Bellew, who is starring in Creed as fighter Pretty Ricky Porter, who gets in the ring for a bout with Adonis Creed and is trained by Stallone's character Rocky Balboa in the new movie.

Stallone was famously photographed attending a soccer match at the same stadium in 2007, and Bellew wants the crowd to make Monday night's filming a special occasion.

In a message to fans, the boxer - a lifelong supporter of Everton Football Club - says, "I would like you to stay in your seats at half-time and keep any eye on the big screens for a very special guest to make a welcome return to Goodison Park.

"Be sure you make as much noise as possible - go absolutely nuts at half-time - to help us create a brilliant atmosphere. I have seen first-hand what kind of noise Evertonians create - it will be perfect for the scene."
