Over £6.5 million raised

A huge Thank You to everyone who donated, raised money, and helped spread the word. We can now confirm that Soccer Aid 2014 raised a record-breaking £6,525,072 for Unicef's work with children around the world. That's amazing!

"I can’t deny that it was a real privilege to captain the Rest Of The World to victory in such a hotly contested match," said Michael Sheen, Rest of the World captain. "But arguably the best bit of all is knowing the difference that this game of football makes.

"Thanks to the public’s generous donations and the pound for pound UK Government Aid Match, this year’s Soccer Aid raised more money than ever for Unicef’s vital work to protect children around the world from danger. On behalf of Unicef, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated."

Meet the children

During Soccer Aid, Unicef supporters and ambassadors including Lewis Hamilton, Dame Judi Dench and David Beckham shared stories of children's lives around the world, from Haiti to the Philippines.
