YouTuber group the Sidemen will take to the London Stadium pitch this week for their annual charity match fundraiser. Supporting an array of charities, including Bright Side and the Teenage Cancer Trust, the collective will play against the YouTube AllStar team this Saturday (September 9).

Moving on from the 27,000-capacity Charlton Valley Stadium, which hosted the Sidemen’s 2022 Charity Match, the YouTube group are set to play in front of 60,000 fans this week at West Ham’s pitch aka the London Stadium.

It was announced the Sidemen would be hosting a 2023 charity match in June. Tickets went on sale later that month but sold out in just 90 minutes.

The Sidemen FC will go head-to-head with the YouTube All-Stars team, which features some of the video-sharing platform’s most recognisable creators, including Mr Beast and IShowSpeed.
