Soccer Aid 2023 - when will it be shown on TV and which celebrities are taking part
The Soccer Aid match is taking place at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium on June 11, 2023
and live on Freeview channel 276
A batch of celebrities will join forces on a football field to raise huge amounts of money for Soccer Aid. Founded by pop star Robbie Williams in 2006, the highly anticipated charity event aims to raise money for Unicef.
The friendly head-to-head match - set to be broadcast on ITV1 on Sunday, June 11 at 6:30pm - sees football legends and entertainment icons split in two teams, with England taking on the Soccer Aid World XI FC. The well-known faces will be cheered on by passionate fans at Manchester United’s iconic Old Trafford Stadium.
However, one well known face won't be there this year. TOWIE star Mark Wright has revealed he will skip this year's sporting event.
In last year’s match, England lost out to World XI on penalties at the London stadium. An estimated £15 million was raised for the worthy cause.
This year, a number of celebrities are donning their football gear including Lioness star and I’m A Celebrity winner Jill Scott, who is back on the pitch.
