SOCCER AID FOR UNICEF MATCH POSTPONED UNTIL LATER IN YEAR
In light of recent developments of coronavirus and thinking of everyone’s health and wellbeing, we have decided to postpone the event on 6 June until later in the year. The postponement has been decided based on UK Government advice and consultation with many other event stakeholders, plus the football family.
Whilst we know this will be disappointing, please be assured that Soccer Aid for Unicef remains committed to holding an event later this year to raise vital funds and help children everywhere grow up happy, healthy and able to play. We are currently working through several options alongside the players, venue and our partners. The game – England vs. Soccer Aid World XI FC – was due to take place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United FC and be broadcast live on ITV and STV.
If you’ve bought a ticket it will be automatically transferred over to the new date once confirmed. For any other ticket enquiries and event info see our FAQ’s

SAVE GENERATION COVID
Soccer Aid for Unicef is the world’s biggest celebrity football match, raising money to give kids the best start in life. But around the world, coronavirus is disrupting everything- it’s closing schools, stopping babies getting vital vaccines and making life in disaster zones even tougher. A whole generation of children are in danger.
Together we can help stop the spread of coronavirus and limit the impact on children’s lives. Every £1 you donate will be matched by the UK government – up to £3 million – until 6th Oct 2020.
