SOCCER AID is just a short wait away – with both teams named and the players ready to lace up their boots.
The Soccer Aid charity fundraiser returns to the capital to once again raise money for a fantastic cause.
Invented by legendary songwriter Robbie Williams in 2006, a combination of former professional footballers and celebrities make up an England team as well as a rest of the World XI team.
They then compete in an annual charity game that provides entertainment with a pinch of competition while raising money for underprivileged children and young people.
The lineups for this edition’s Soccer Aid have already been announced and include some familiar faces such as Arsene Wenger, Liam Payne and the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt.
But when is the UNICEF charity event, where can you see it and what’s new from the team?

Luther part of the leadership clique
Idris Elba will join Arsene Wenger and Robbie Keane in coaching the rest-of-the-world squad. With the summer sun scorching, I’m not sure he’ll wear his recognizable wool trench coat.
It makes one hell of a trio on the sidelines, gimmicks the thought of a halftime tongue whipped by these three.
The visitors have some real world-class talent on their team tonight, some of whom would go on to play in football teams across Europe.
Tonight’s team news:
Both sides showcase a mix of ex-football talent and the who’s who of the showbiz world.
A real opportunity for those embarking on the path of a career as a schlager musician, actor and athlete rather than their preferred path as a League 2 footballer.
Welcome to Soccer Aid 2022
Robbie Williams’ original idea to raise money for Unicef, Soccer Aid has grown into a huge annual event instead of being the biannual event it was originally intended to be.
An England XI will take on a rest of the world XI at West Ham Utd’s London Stadium, with the England side being captained by Harry Redknapp and David Seaman.
The Rest of the World XI is managed by a partnership of Arsene Wenger and Robbie Keane.
Ex-Arsenal manager Wenger knows quite a bit about managing teams in London having dominated The Gunners between 1996 and 2018.
Both sides will have a mix of ex-footballers and celebrities looking to put on a show for the crowd to raise more money for Unicef.
This is the 11th year the charity football game has been held and this year every donation, up to a maximum of £4 million, will be matched by The Power of Nutrition.
This aims to help support the health and nutrition of children around the world and offers donors a chance to make a double difference in people’s lives.
