Soccer Aid 2020 is back! Giving us an unforgettable game last year packed with goals, drama, celebs and some of the most iconic names in football, Soccer Aid is raising HUGE amounts of money for Unicef to make a difference for children and families all over the world.
Soccer Aid for Unicef is THE biggest charity football match and will take place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United. Doing things a bit differently this year, the squads will hit the pitch for 90 minutes of unmissable play to raise vital funds to fight Coronavirus. This year you can kick back and watch the match from the comf’ of your sofa. This is not a game you want to miss!
Bringing together some of football’s finest legends mixed with celebrities, the former England manager, Sam Allardyce returns after taking charge of the England side in last year’s game, while King of the Jungle Harry Rednapp will pick up the baton to captain the reigning champs of the World XI side.
From actors to comedians, from Love Island icons to Brazilian football legends, expect a surreal encounter between England and World XIs.
While not a professional football match, the annual Soccer Aid game brings some fun to the sport! With the money raised each year, the funds are put towards the stop to coronavirus that is making life even tougher for families and vulnerable children all over the world.
Unicef is working to provide essential support, vaccinations and fun experiences for more than 80,000 children in Africa.
With the UK government matching every pound raised, Soccer Aid and Unicef are making a difference. Head over to the Soccer Aid website where you can continue to donate and show your support for fun!
