THE BIGGEST CELEBRITY CHARITY FOOTBALL EVENT OF THE YEAR RETURNS IN 2014

Soccer Aid is back!

The epic sporting event will take place on Sunday 8th June at Old Trafford and will broadcast live on ITV. Two star-studded squads of footballing legends and high-profile celebrities from England and the Rest of the World will compete in an electrifying football match all in aid of UNICEF, the world's leading children's organisation.

The 2012 event welcomed an array of Hollywood stars, footballing heroes and some of the UK’s most famous faces who battled it out on the most hallowed turf in England. Once again in 2014, Robbie Williams will lead the England team with Welsh movie star Michael Sheen captaining the Rest of the World.

Look out for a raft of celebrity names being announced over the next few months. Soccer Aid 2014 is sure to be bigger and better than ever before.

Money raised through Soccer Aid go to UNICEF's invaluable work helping children around the world. This will be the fifth Soccer Aid event, with the previous matches, held Wembley in 2008 and at Old Trafford in 2006, 2010 and 2012 raising over £12 million in total for UNICEF's work.
