It’s finally here! After months of build-up, Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2022 is finally kicking off this Sunday, at West Ham’s London Stadium.

Here’s what’s going down this week…



The biggest charity football match on the calendar returns with a whole load of familiar faces and even more new ones, too.


This year’s England XI are managed by the legendary Harry Redknapp and ex-Arsenal and England ‘keeper David Seaman. Their side has the likes of musicians Aitch, Liam Payne and Tom Grennan, while our guy Chunkz also features for his second appearance.


They’re joined by ex-Premier League defenders turned commentators Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, as well as recently retired West Ham icon Mark Noble.


On the other side of the pitch, the World XI are managed by Arsène Wenger and Robbie Keane, with comedians Lee Mack, Mo Gillighan and Munya Chawawa; and actors Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Mark Strong in the side.


They’ll be linking up with footballing royalty in Roberto Carlos, Andrea Pirlo, Cafu, Andriy Shevchenko and Soccer Aid for UNICEF regular Patrice Evra.


With a half-time performance from Soccer Aid for UNICEF’s creator Robbie Williams, this year’s shaping up to be the biggest yet…
