Katie Chapman, former Chelsea and England player is among the first ever female players to take part in this year's Soccer Aid. She is supporting the Great Big Kickabout encouraging thousands of people to come together and play football for Soccer Aid for Unicef. The money raised will help make sure children around the world are happy, healthy and safe to play.

It's fantastic that we are able to inspire people to get out and play and that's why I'm delighted to be supporting the Great Big Kickabout. It's an honour for me to be involved in Soccer Aid for Unicef this year, especially as one of the first female players."
