Soccer Aid is back tonight – with Old Trafford as the backdrop to the world's biggest charity football match.


England will have extra motivation after losing out to the Soccer Aid World XI again in 2022 and have drafted in plenty of talent, both on the pitch and in the dugout, to ensure they don't come away empty-handed this time around.

The event once more gathers together a host of well-known celebrity faces as well as former football players for an evening of unmissable sport. This year's line-up includes the likes of Queen of the Jungle Jill Scott, who is leading the star-studded England squad this year.

The Soccer Aid World XI team, led by Usain Bolt, is just as exciting and will be able to call on the expertise of new Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino in the dugout as well as the experience of legends such as Roberto Carlos, Hernán Crespo, and Francesco Totti on the pitch.

It promises to be plenty of fun and likely an absolute goal fest.

What is Soccer Aid?

UNICEF's annual charity football match has grown and grown since it was created by Robbie Williams in 2006.
