It gives us great pleasure to announce that Soccer Aid is back and will take place this year on 5 June at its spiritual home of Old Trafford.
Tickets for the event are on sale now, available for purchase at manutd.com/socceraid or by calling 0845 456 2016.*
Now in its tenth year, Soccer Aid pits two star-studded squads representing England and the Rest of the World against one another in a sporting spectacular broadcast live on ITV from the legendary venue in Manchester.
Robbie will be resuming his role as England's Assistant Manager, taking on a Rest of the World team captained once again by Michael Sheen.
Announcing the news, Robbie said: 'It's not often you get the chance to do something so worthwhile on a scale like this and for Soccer Aid to be celebrating its 10th anniversary is just incredible. Every time it gets bigger and better and with a star line up set to play for England, I think I've landed the best job. I can't wait to feel the atmosphere at Old Trafford again, hearing the crowd roar as we take on the Rest of the World. This year we're going to try and smash our fundraising record for Unicef to help keep even more children around the world safe.
The money raised through ticket sales and viewer donations will go to UNICEF to support their vital work for children in danger and will add to the incredible ¬£17m generated in previous years.
