Soccer Aid 2016!
Kicks off on Sunday!
This year’s hotly anticipated Soccer Aid will once again see a host of stars take to the pitch to raise money for UNICEF. Included in the player line-up will be Jonny Wilkes, Ben Shephard, Marvin Humes, Paddy McGuinness, Louis Tomlinson and Howard Webb who will be refereeing the game.
Taking place at Old Trafford this year, Soccer Aid was originally the brainchild of Robbie Williams in 2006, Unicef UK’s ambassador. Now in its tenth year, so far Soccer Aid has raised an extraordinary £17 million for the charity’s work.
As in previous years, two teams of celebrities and football legends will take to the pitch for the most hotly anticipated celebrity match of the year. All funds raised go towards saving and changing children’s lives, with money being used in a host of areas, including clean water, vaccines and protection from violence and abuse.
Tune into ITV at 6pm on Sunday to catch the game!
