SOCCER AID FOR UNICEF
2022 LINE UP
SOCCER AID FOR UNICEF AT THE LONDON STADIUM, SUNDAY 12 JUNE
Team favourites Tom Grennan, Lee Mack and Martin Compston will lace up their boots to play alongside footballing legends Teddy Sheringham, Jamie Carragher, Cafu and Andriy Shevchenko. Usain Bolt makes his return as captain of the Soccer Aid World XI team and Sir Mo Farah puts on the England shirt once again, both competing at the London Stadium ten years on from their gold medal heroics at London 2012.
Taking to the pitch for the first time in the world’s biggest celebrity football match, new signings for 2022 include former One Direction singer Liam Payne as captain of the England team. He will be joined by Dragon’s Den star Steven Bartlett, and comedians Munya Chawawa and Alex Brooker – who will become the first-ever physically disabled participant to take part in the game.
Off-pitch, UNICEF UK Ambassador Dermot O’Leary returns as Presenter, joined by Maya Jama providing her thoughts as a Pundit. To bring you the action up-close, Alex Scott will be returning as our Pitch-side Reporter.
Stay tuned for more announcements coming soon.
