First it was Louis Tomlinson who signed a deal with his local football team Doncaster Rovers, but now it looks like Niall Horan wants a piece of the action too.
The One Direction star couldn't resist having a knock about with a football as he took time out with Louis while staying in Sydney on Sunday.
The singers, who are in the Australian city with the rest of the group, looked to be enjoying some time away from rehearsals for their sell-out concerts.
The 20-year-old looked to be a dab hand at keepy-uppies as he messed around wearing a Sydney Roosters Jersey.
He teamed his top with a pair of simple grey shorts, Nike trainers and black, Ray Ban sunglasses.
The star was showing his support for the Australian rugby league football club as they prepared to appear in the NRL Grand Final that evening.
He later tweeted a photo to his 14 million Twitter followers, of him and his friend at the game, with the pitch behind them.
He wrote: 'We're here ! @nlativy grand final ! Roosters v sea eagles ! Great game! @deodevine'.
While Louis didn't look like he wanted to be outdone by his band mate, as he kicked the ball around enthusiastically in dirty, white plimsoll trainers.
He also wore a white T-shirt with a picture of a surfer, with the words 'Free' written across his chest.
The 21-year-old signed to his beloved Doncaster Rovers in August, when he was issued with the number 28 shirt for the 2013/2014 season.
Louis, who once worked at the club as a hospitality waiter, has been signed as a non-contract player in aid of Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice in Sheffield.
Speaking about the role he said: 'This has always been a childhood dream for me. I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it's all about.'
A club spokesman said they hoped he would appear in Rovers colours and train with the Championship footballers 'at some point this season' in aid of the charity.
They're about to make their debut performance in Sydney - but, clearly, Niall, Louis and the rest of the boys won't need to worry about whether it will be a success.
The British five-piece have already been the subject of a major fever pitch down under.
Alongside Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne, the group have collectively caused hordes of teenage girls to recreate Beatle-mania in the sunshine city.
