Soccer Aid for UNICEF has invited pupils from primary and secondary schools across Britain to design their ultimate mascot for this year's match.

The star-studded match takes place on Sunday, June 9, at the renowned Stamford Bridge stadium.

This imaginative venture could reward young winners with the opportunity to appear as a mascot on the pitch or watch the game live at the stadium.

The mascot design competition is a segment of Soccer Aid for UNICEF Academy, a fresh school-based football fundraiser.

The aim is to encourage friendly rivalry between schools while collecting essential funds to help every child worldwide experience, pleasant, healthy, and playful upbringings.

Students' entries will be judged by the UNICEF Youth Advisory Board.

The panel is seeking mascot designs that not only inspire good fortune for both England and World XI FC teams but embody the essence and spirit of Soccer Aid for UNICEF: assuring every child's right to play.

Sarah Wren, head of Soccer Aid for UNICEF, said: "We’re so excited to launch this Mascot Design Competition to inspire children to embrace their creativity, regardless of ability.

"We’re encouraging kids across the UK to get playful, colourful, and have a blast experimenting with different mascot styles – all in the spirit of supporting Soccer Aid for UNICEF.

"Together, we’re not just creating mascots, we’re raising essential funds for children around the world to give them the best start in life Since its initiation in 2006, Soccer Aid for UNICEF has amassed over £90 million to help build a better world for each child."

The 2024 event will be showcased live and exclusively on ITV1, STV and ITVX.
