Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2021 has raised £13,014,769!

Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2021 was officially a record-breaker, raising an incredible £13,014,769 – the most in Soccer Aid history! All the money raised will help UNICEF’s work around the world, so that children everywhere can have the childhoods they deserve.



Created by Robbie Williams in 2006, Soccer Aid for UNICEF is the world’s biggest celebrity-charity football match, raising money to give kids the best start in life. Once a year, England take on their opponents, the Soccer Aid World XI FC. Supported by passionate fans in an iconic stadium and broadcast live on ITV and STV, the event harnesses the power of football to help make sure that children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play.

This year, we celebrated the 10th Soccer Aid for UNICEF at our new host venue for 2021 – Manchester City’s spectacular Etihad Stadium.


Help UNICEF fight back against Covid, for every child, everywhere.


Covid-19 continues to devastate children’s lives. It’s the biggest global crisis since World War Two and it’s left more children at greater risk than ever before. Shutting down their schools. Overwhelming healthcare services they rely on. Destroying their families’ livelihoods. Disrupting medical and food supplies and pushing millions more children into hunger.

Children worldwide won’t be safe until everyone they rely on is safe. So in 2021, Soccer Aid for UNICEF is fighting back.

Together we could help UNICEF deliver 2 billion vaccines for frontline health workers and teachers. And help kids worldwide get back to school, recover from malnutrition, and get the healthcare they need today and long after the crisis is over.

It’s our biggest goal ever and we can’t do it without you. This year, every donation to Soccer Aid for UNICEF –up to £6.3million, until 30th November –is being matched by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, helping to support the health and nutrition of children around the world. So you’ll make double the difference.
