Soccer Aid 2016 Raises Record Amount for UNICEF

UNICEF, the world’s leading children’s organisation, announced that Soccer Aid 2016 raised £6.6 million, smashing all of their previous records! The big event took place at Old Trafford on 5th June 2016, where celebrities, football legends and a crowd of almost 70,000 people came together for the 10th Anniversary of the star-studded event.

Unicef UK Ambassador and co-founder of Soccer Aid, Robbie Williams, said:

“We said we wanted to smash our fundraising record for Unicef and we did it! Thank you so much to everyone who came to the match or donated on the night; you helped make it the biggest and best Soccer Aid so far. In the ten years since Soccer Aid began we’ve raised £24 million for Unicef so they can help keep even more children safe. That’s incredible and something we could only dream of when Soccer Aid began all those years ago.”
