The match will feature an exclusive half-time performance from Unicef UK Ambassador Rita Ora, who also features in one of this year’s short films highlighting the work made possible through donations to Soccer Aid for Unicef, and why the donations are needed more than ever.
Unicef UK Ambassador Rita Ora said: “I’m SO excited to be performing at Soccer Aid for Unicef this year. This year’s event will no doubt be bigger and better than ever before and to be able to play right in the middle of Stamfrod Bridge at half-time is brilliant. It’s going to be an amazing match!”
Films with fellow Unicef UK Ambassadors James Nesbitt, and Olivia Colman, and supporters David Harewood, Gemma Chan, and Sanjeev Bhasker will also be shown throughout the show, showing how Soccer Aid for Unicef helps defend play for every child.
To date, Soccer Aid has raised £30 million for Unicef UK.
The UK government will match every £1 donated by the public up to 23 July 2019 through its UK Aid Match scheme, doubling the difference for children in danger around the world.
The monies raised will go towards Unicef’s vital work protecting children in danger around the world.
