Germany's six-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher and rock singer Sting will take part in next month's 2006 World Cup qualifying draw. Brazilian great Pele will join FIFA president Sepp Blatter among the 3,500 spectators at the December 5 event, one of the first major milestones en route to the finals in Germany. Sting will also help to provide the entertainment along with American a cappella act Naturally Seven.

Organising committee officials told a news conference on Tuesday that over 100 countries are taking live TV coverage and several hundred million people are expected to watch the draw. About 700 journalists have registered for the event.
