Robbie Williams has announced that his biannual Soccer Aid event to benefit UNICEF will be held on June 6 at Old Trafford in Manchester.

The singer will be joined on the field this year by a host of entertainment and sporting legends, including Irish boyband Westlife, Gordon Ramsay, comedian James Corden, Alan Shearer, criketer Brian Lara, Ben Shephard, Jonathan Wilkes and many more.

Robbie launched Soccer Aid in 2006, and the match takes the form of “England vs. The Rest Of The World”. Soccer Aid aims to raise money for UNICEF’s crucial work helping to put it right for the world’s most vulnerable children. Throughout the match program, viewers will see short films from UNICEF Ambassadors about how money raised will benefit children around the world. 2008’s match attracted over 40,000 fans.

“I am so excited Soccer Aid is back,” said Williams. “It will be a great time for football, with World Cup fever at boiling point.”
