Help UNICEF protect play for every child
Children need play. But for millions of children around the world, war, disaster, hunger and poverty are getting in the way.
When children lose their homes, their families, and their schools, they lose out on happy, healthy, play-filled childhoods. Just when they need that safe space and moment of escape the most, it’s gone.
By being part of Soccer Aid for UNICEF, you’re joining one big team – united by play, to help all children play.
If you believe in play-filled childhoods, please donate now.
How your support helps children around the world
Soccer Aid for UNICEF helps children have safe, healthy childhoods.
The money raised from this year’s game could help UNICEF fight malnutrition, keep children safe in times of crisis, and get them back to school. It could also help provide vaccines against preventable diseases such as polio, so all children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play.
Together we’re protecting play for every child.
What is Soccer Aid For UNICEF
Created by Robbie Williams in 2006, Soccer Aid for UNICEF is the world’s biggest celebrity football match, raising money to give kids the best start in life. Once a year, England take on their opponents, the Soccer Aid World XI FC. Supported by passionate fans in an iconic stadium and broadcast live on ITV and STV, the event harnesses the power of football to help make sure that children can grow up happy, healthy and able to play.
Over the last 17 years, more than £90 million has been raised through Soccer Aid for UNICEF, helping UNICEF reach more children than any other humanitarian organisation. We’ve provided vaccines, clean water and protection from violence to millions of children around the world, so they can have happy, healthy childhoods.
