It’s not always the footballers themselves who are the most famous presence at a stadium – why, check out the following top 10 instances of A-list stars at football matches!

Sylvester Stallone at Everton

Rocky’s half-time address during Everton’s 0-0 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday night may have been beamed out of a screen, but he was there in the flesh at Goodison Park for a 1-1 draw with Reading in 2007…

Tom Cruise and Robert Duvall at Man City

Over for a December 2012 Manchester derby that ended 3-2 to visiting United, Cruise and Duvall deigned to give the cameras an interview with a touch more lustre than the average Geoff Shreeves team news item…

David Hasselhoff at Man City

Shortly after Cruise and Duvall’s visit, former Baywatch star Hasselhoff, who had been in the area playing ‘Hoff the Hook’ in Manchester Theatres’s production of Peter Pan, popped along to the Etihad for a 3-0 New Year’s Day victory over Stoke City…

Michael Jackson at Fulham

Mike Tyson at Peterborough United

In town for his 2010 show An Audience with Mike Tyson, boxing legend Iron Mike popped along to London Road for a friendly against West Ham United…

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels at Arsenal

Promotion of Dumb and Dumber To was on the agenda when Carrey and Daniels lit up the Emirates with their unique brand of former glories earlier this season. The Gunners would go on to lose 0-2 at home to Man Utd…

Jay Z and Beyoncé at Paris Saint-Germain

The power couple joined their footballing chum David Beckham for a Champions League match against Barcelona in September…

Kevin Costner at Arsenal

Another one from recent months, the erstwhile Robin Hood pitched up at Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Burnley while in London filming for his new film Criminal

Diana Ross at the World Cup

And who could forget the time Diana Ross missed a penalty at the ’94 World Cup?

Just caught in two minds there, Clive.
