Speaking at last year’s event, Paul Pogba said: “Manchester United is big and we can have a big impact in the world; I hope it can carry on helping people. You have to think about the kids who are not in our position. I love to help people and this is the best opportunity to do that.”

The United for Unicef partnership is the longest running of its kind between a sport organisation and a global children’s organisation. This season’s Gala Dinner will raise money for some of the world’s most vulnerable children affected by emergencies.

Today, one in four of the world’s children live in a country affected by conflict or disaster. 50 million children have been uprooted from their homes. Right now, children’s needs have never been greater and they need our support.
