Soccer Aid for Unicef is back!

On Sunday 6th September, the world’s biggest celebrity football match is back on ITV and STV, raising money to help children around the world. To keep everyone involved as safe as possible, this Soccer Aid are asking supporters to watch the match live on ITV and STV. It might be behind closed doors, but this will still be a game like no other. At a time when Generation Covid desperately need our support, it will bring the nation together to help provide children with everything from clean water to lifesaving vaccinations.

The two star-studded teams will be raising vital funds to stop coronavirus making life even tougher for vulnerable children and Robbie Williams will even be performing with The Struts at half-time. Plus, ITV family favourite Dermot O’Leary will present the live show with Kirsty Gallacher returning as pitch-side reporter.

And for the first time, the UK Government and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, will both match public donations and fundraising for Soccer Aid, meaning every £1 raised or donated becomes an amazing £3 – up to £3 million – until 6 Oct 2020.

Soccer Aid Challenge

This year celebrities from Joe Wicks to Wayne Rooney will play for Generation Covid, helping Unicef ensure every child can grow up happy, healthy and able to play. And Unicef UK has asked Parliamentarians to join in the fun and show their support for every child’s right to play by taking part in their Parliamentary Soccer Aid Challenge.

And you might even be inspired to take part in your very own #SoccerAidChallenge - there are no rules – simply fundraise whatever you can, in whatever way you like. Plus unlike ever before, any money you raise will be tripled thanks to the UK Government and Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance.
