Everything you need to know about Soccer Aid 2020

The new football season hasn’t returned yet, but the biggest charity football match of the year will fill the void.

Soccer Aid is finally back this weekend, and will take place at Manchester United home ground Old Trafford.

Soccer Aid 2020 was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic in June.

But now football has started to return to our screens, without fans in the stadium of course, it means the charity event can go ahead.

Despite there being no fans in the stadium, it won’t stop the fun on and off the pitch as Wayne Rooney returns to his old stomping ground.

Dermot O’Leary will be there to present the show live, with Kirsy Gallacher by his side.

When is Soccer Aid?

Soccer Aid 2020 will take place on Sunday, September 6.

It was originally pencilled in for Saturday, June 6, but it couldn’t go ahead.

Every £1 donated will automatically be trebled thanks to the UK government and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

That means every £1 becomes £3, up to £3million, until October 6 2020.

How to watch Soccer Aid

Soccer Aid will be live on ITV from 6.30pm.

You can also live stream the event on the ITV Hub.
