On February 27 2018 Usain announced he would be playing for Soccer Aid, after weeks of teasing that he had signed to a team.

It looks like Soccer Aid 2018 will let Robbie Williams entertain you, with the British pop star and Usain Bolt being announced as the Soccer Aid captains in the biennial charity football match. At the last Soccer Aid in 2016, the likes of One Direction's Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson participated, while Will Ferrell put in a memorable shift at Soccer Aid 2012.

The match will take place at Old Trafford stadium in Manchester, England on June 10 and will be broadcast live on ITV in the U.K. All profits from ticket sales and viewer donations will be given to United Nations Childrens' Fund (UNICEF) UK, for which Robbie serves as an ambassador.
