Home > Soccer Aid: Join the Playground Challenge

Join schools across the UK for a game like no other

On Friday 8 June 2018, thousands of children in school playgrounds across the UK will kick, bounce or carry a ball round an obstacle course that they’ve designed. The first ever Soccer Aid Playground Challenge is a brilliant way to get your whole school active, having fun and raising money to help children around the world – and it’s so easy:

  • Get started by signing up for your FREE schools fundraising pack
  • Get creative and design an obstacle course with your pupils
  • Get ready for kick off!

Sign up before 10 May to enter our exclusive prize draw! You could win a signed football, tickets to watch the Soccer Aid match itself or the chance to complete your Playground Challenge on Old Trafford’s 5-a-side pitch.

Need any more info? We’d love to hear from you over email at or call us on 0300 330 5580.

*Terms and conditions apply.

Every £1

your school raises will be doubled by the UK government – so if you raise £100 that means £200 goes to help children*

Every child has the right to play

Sebenele is 14. He lives with his mum in a village in Swaziland, southern Africa. Last year, he was severely malnourished.

Now he is better and stronger thanks to support from Unicef.

“Last year, I was sick. When I was sick my body stopped growing but now I am growing and I feel well every day. Now I get enough food.

I’m playing football and many games that I couldn’t play last year. I go to a Unicef-supported teen club where I can meet my friends, play games and they teach us how to take care of ourselves. I make sure I’m a good boy and I help to take care of my mum.

When I finish school I want to be a nurse because you can take care of others as well as afford to eat.”

Every £5 raised from your Soccer Aid Playground Challenge could help feed a child like Sebenele for a week at a Unicef-supported centre.
