Soccer Aid for Unicef will be hosting a live FIFA ’20 tournament to generate donations to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and limit its impact on children’s lives.

Streamed live via Twitch on Saturday 27 June, eSoccer Aid for Unicef will see eight matches take place between celebrities including: Usain Bolt, Liam Payne, James McAvoy and Robbie Williams.

As a UK Aid Match appeal, every pound donated for the event will be matched by the UK government.

Anne-Marie Trevalyn, International Development Secretary, says: “This superb event is raising funds to help stop the spread of coronavirus and limit its impact on some of the most vulnerable children in the world. I am proud the UK government is matching, pound for pound, all donations from the UK public to eSoccer Aid, and helping to support Unicef’s vital work across the globe.”
