Soccer Aid for UNICEF: Get your tickets for this weekend

Soccer Aid for UNICEF: Get your tickets for this weekend
This weekend, Manchester City will host Soccer Aid for UNICEF for the first time!

The world’s biggest charity football match will take place on Saturday 4 September 2021 – the first time the match has taken place on a Saturday – at the home of the Premier League Champions: the Etihad Stadium.

City Academy graduate and fan favourite Shaun Wright-Phillips is amongst the star-studded line-up, alongside former City midfield engine Nigel de Jong and goalkeepers David Seaman and David James.


Tickets and hospitality are still available for the game, which kicks off at 7:30pm UK time, as some of the greatest names in the game go head-to-head with some of the world's biggest celebrities.

The England vs. Soccer Aid World XI FC clash marks the tenth match in its 15-year history. Child tickets start from £10, adults from £20 and a family of four can attend the anniversary game from £60.

Fans are also invited to enjoy our hospitality packages in our Platinum Boxes and Citizens Suite.

Experience the atmosphere of the Citizens Suite with padded seats on the halfway line, and savour a three-course carvery meal plus half-time and full-time refreshments.

Or, have your very own private box access in our Platinum Box with a private balcony, three-course buffet meal, complimentary beer, house wine and soft drinks, and half-time and full-time refreshments.

Car parking is included with both hospitality packages.


Since 2006 – when UNICEF UK Ambassador Robbie Williams founded the concept – Soccer Aid for UNICEF has raised more than £47m to help give children all over the world a childhood full of play.

Soccer Aid for UNICEF 2020 raised a record breaking £9.3m.

As many countries celebrate coming out of lockdown, the COVID-19 crisis is still making life for many vulnerable children even tougher.

The money raised from this year’s game could help UNICEF deliver 2billion COVID-19 vaccines to frontline healthcare workers, social workers and teachers around the world – the people children rely on – and help children get back to school, beat malnutrition, and get the healthcare they need today and long after the crisis is over.

It’s us against COVID-19 for every child, everywhere.
