Soccer Aid for Unicef raises record-breaking £7.9m in 2019 campaign

Soccer Aid for Unicef announced today a record-breaking total of £7.9m was raised at this year’s event, with 100% of the money going towards Unicef’s vital work.

Selling out Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, the match ended in a 2-2 draw, leading to a tense penalty shoot-out with Soccer Aid World XI beating England 3-2.

The match will return to Manchester next year, with Ed Woodward, Executive Vice-Chairman for Manchester United FC saying “We are delighted to welcome Soccer Aid for Unicef back to Old Trafford next year. It’s always an enjoyable and entertaining day and its privilege for us to host the game which raises funds for such a vital cause.”

This year, £1.1m more was raised compared to the 2018 fixture, with thanks to the public, corporate partners and the UK government – who matched donations up to £3m.

Since the first match 13 years ago, over £38m has been raised. Projects are expected to benefit more than 25m of the world’s poorest people, changing and saving lives.

Shepherd Offshore is proud to be a part of Soccer Aid for Unicef and will continue to collaborate on future projects and campaigns.

“We could like to congratulate everyone involved in Soccer Aid for Unicef. This fantastic outcome is something they should be proud of and we’d like to wish them all the best in next year’s campaign”.
