Former Strictly Come Dancing professional and TV personality Brendan Cole will be taking part in this year’s Soccer Aid for Unicef match on ITV.

He will join Usain Bolt's World team, who will take on Robbie’s England at Old Trafford on Sunday 10th June.

As soon as the curtain fell on my Strictly career, I knew my next move had to be Soccer Aid for Unicef. For years, I have been a massive fan of the match and have always watched the game in between performances. To be able to finally announce that I will be swapping my dancing shoes for football boots this summer feels incredible.

What’s bigger than the nation’s love of dancing? The nation’s love of the beautiful game, of course – and I’m aiming for tens across the board.

– Brendan Cole, Soccer Aid World XI

The international friendly match will take place at Old Trafford on Sunday 10th June.

Tickets are available here.
