Soccer Aid is a highlight of the footballing calendar, watching some of the worlds best players go up against celebrities is blockbuster TV. I mean what is not to love about watching Olly Murs flying into Clarence Seedorf or Paddy McGuiness score a worldie into Shay Given?
This year is also seeing the shenanigans going virtual, with FIFA 22 being the grounds for a similar competition all in aid of UNICEF.
Featuring teams made up of content creators, footballs and FIFA pros, they will battle it out in 2v2 games earning points for their chosen team. There is no money on the line, just the opportunity to play FIFA 22 a day before release and raise more for the work of UNICEF.
That isn't all that is happening though, as those at home can also get involved. Those that watch the tournament on Twitch will also earn an exclusive DB7 FUT kit, designed by David Beckham and artist Reuben Dangoor.
To get the kit players will have to link their EA and Twitch accounts. We have provided instructions on how to do so below.
FIFA 22 players will also be able to play with a Soccer Aid World XI FC team throughout the life of FIFA 22, featuring David Beckham, Roberto Carlos, and Diego Maradona this star-studded outfit is available through the Kick-Off mode.
The full line-up for this squad is below.
