Yungblud has been added to the line-up for Soccer Aid 2021, a match which will support UNICEF.
The Soccer Aid 2021 match, which will be broadcast live on ITV, will be played at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium on September 4.
The game will feature football legends Wayne Rooney, Roberto Carlos, Ashley Cole and Patrice Evra and other famous stars like Usain Bolt, Tom Grennan, Roman Kemp and Paddy McGuinnessa among others.
“It’s crazy to be taking part in Soccer Aid for UNICEF – I feel like I’ve been waiting for the call my whole life! Being asked wasn’t something I even had to think about – I said yes before I got the call,” Yungblud said of the honor.
“I can’t wait to get back in front of an audience. My fan base are my blood and guts so I can’t wait to see them at the Etihad Stadium. I know they’ll be showing their support by buying tickets to the match.”
He added, “I’ll be nervous but also excited walking into the stadium alongside some of my childhood heroes. Soccer Aid is such a cool idea and it’s for a great cause – UNICEF. Football is a lot harder than rock’ n’ roll for me. I think people are maybe expecting me to be on the pitch in a leather skirt and spike bracelet, but I’ll be out there trying to win the game.”
