Football for a good cause is what it's all about on Saturday night. The FIFA 20 eSoccer Aid event will include popular names such as Usain Bolt, Robbie Williams and Liam Payne in the name of charity.

What a lineup! EA Sports and Soccer Aid for Unicef invite you to the FIFA 20 eSoccer Aid. At 6 pm CET on Saturday night, Usain Bolt will captain the Soccer Aid World XI FC against an England selection led by Robbie Williams.

eSoccer Aid: FIFA 20 for a good cause

In a series of eight 1-on-1 matches on Saturday, the Soccer Aid World XI FC team and a selection from England will compete in FIFA 20 to thrill fans in front of the screen and raise money for a good cause.

The donations from eSoccer Aid will benefit Unicef to help stem the spread of COVID-19 and reduce its impact on children's lives. The roster of both teams is absolutely impressive: in addition to stars from sports and music, some well-known esports figures will also be competing.

Legendary sprinter Usain Bolt, actor James McAvoy and freestyle footballer Billy Wingrove, singer Liam Payne and another legend on the track โ€“ Mohamed Farah, are some of the more interesting blokes weโ€™ll see on Saturday. Swede Olle "Ollelito" Arbin, who recently won FUT Champions Cup Stage 3, represents the professional FIFA scene on the World Team. His opposite on the English squad is Donovan โ€œTekkzโ€ Hunt โ€“ one of the best performers in 2019.

All games will be broadcast live on the Twitch channel of EA Sports, starting Satudray, June 27, at 6 pm CET. Donations for eSoccer Aid are already open through the Tiltify platform, so you donโ€™t have to wait till the weekend to make a contribution.
