Football superstar Lionel Messi will marry his childhood sweetheart in his hometown in Argentina on Friday (today).

The Barcelona player is returning to the city of Rosario to wed Antonella Roccuzzo, whom he met there before he moved to Spain aged 13.

Argentine newspaper Clarín has called it “the wedding of the year” and even “the wedding of the century.”

The 30-year-old world-rated footballer and his bride, 29-year-old Antonella Roccuzzo have been in the relationship since 2008.

Messi’s teammates, including Luis Suárez and Neymar, will be among the 260 guests, it said. Many have flown in on private jets.

Extra police officers have been drafted in to ensure security is maintained around the hotel, while a private security firm will work inside to keep out any potential gate crashers.

Around 150 journalists have received accreditation to enter a special press area, but will not have full access to the venue, said organisers.

 Messi, 30, met his future wife when he was just five years old.She is the cousin of his best friend, Lucas Scaglia, who also became a professional football player.

Messi accepted an offer to play for Barcelona when he was 13, on condition they pay for treatment for his growth hormone deficiency.
