Soccer Aid 2016 smashes on the night total

Soccer Aid was back on our screens and it was a match worthy of its tenth anniversary. 70,000 fans filled Old Trafford and a peak audience of 5.8 million tuned in to see England triumph 3-2 against the Rest of the World.

During the game we saw appeal films from Nicole Scherzinger, Tinie Temper and Olivia Colman amongst others. And thanks to your generous support when the final whistle blew, we were delighted to announce that £5.4 million had been raised, smashing all previous on the night totals. The money will continue to help Unicef provide children with life-saving food, vaccines and clean water, as well as protecting them from violence, exploitation and abuse. A huge thank you to everybody who made this possible.

Donation routes are now closed.
