The game is hugely popular and attracts millions of viewers each year, as people get to watch some of the biggest names from years past compete against each other.

Last year, an incredible £14million was also raised with ex-pros and celebrities turning out for a night of fun.

There are also expected to be plenty of returns to Stamford Bridge, with Eden Hazard, Frank Lampard and Michael Essien all taking part in one way or another.

However, the most intriguing return is that of Mauricio Pochettino, who managed Chelsea until May 2024 before leaving after just one season.

Soccer Aid 2024: What was said?

Former Chelsea and England midfielder Joe Cole spoke to talkSPORT’s Olly Clink about this year’s Soccer Aid.

He said: “It’s a lot of fun.

“It’s a win-win for everyone. You’re raising money for a fantastic cause, one that helps people around the world, and the fans love it.

“People connect as a family and sit and watch, and we all enjoy doing that.

“When you’re on the pitch it’s surreal. You look out and you’ve got Clarence Seedorf, then Max & Paddy, and then there’s Usain Bolt, it’s a surreal experience.”
