The Soccer Aid for Unicef match, which was originally scheduled for Saturday 6 June 2020 at Old Trafford, has been postponed following an announcement today by Soccer Aid. The statement is as follows:

"Everyone connected with Soccer Aid for Unicef recognises that these are unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone affected by coronavirus.
In light of the current situation, the decision has been taken to postpone the Soccer Aid for Unicef match, which was originally scheduled for Saturday 6 June 2020. 

The game – England vs. Soccer Aid World XI FC – was due to take place at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United FC and be broadcast live on ITV and STV.


The health and safety of the general public, Soccer Aid for Unicef fans and players is paramount. The postponement has been decided based on UK Government advice and consultation with many other event stakeholders, plus the football family.
Whilst a new date has not yet been confirmed, several options are being explored. Soccer Aid for Unicef remains committed to holding an event later this year to raise vital funds and help children everywhere grow up happy, healthy and able to play.

Tickets purchased for the original date will still be valid for the re-arranged match. Further updates will be provided as soon as they are available.
