​Soccer Aid charity match cancelled

Charity football match Soccer Aid, due to take place at Old Trafford on 6 June, has been postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

"The health and safety of the general public, Soccer Aid for Unicef fans and players is paramount," Soccer Aid said.

The organisers added: "The postponement has been decided based on UK Government advice and consultation with many other event stakeholders, plus the football family.

"While a new date has not yet been confirmed, several options are being explored.

"Soccer Aid for Unicef remains committed to holding an event later this year to raise vital funds and help children everywhere grow up happy, healthy and able to play."

Tickets purchased for the original date will still be valid for the rearranged match in 2020.
