What is Soccer Aid?

Soccer Aid was created in 2006 by pop star Robbie Williams as a way to help raise money for children’s charity Unicef.

Celebrities and former players got together to play a charity football match to raise funds to give kids the best start in life.

More than 70,000 people were in the stands to watch the first Soccer Aid between England and the World XI at Old Trafford.

It was such a hit that the event returned two years later and continued to do so until 2018 when it became an annual event.

Soccer Aid harnesses the power of football to help make sure that children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play.
