The Sidemen are a group of seven friends that shot to fame through a combination of incredibly popular YouTube channels and last summer they took on the YouTube Allstars in front of 15,000 spectators at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium.

The match, which finished 7-2 to the Sidemen, raised over £100,000 for charity and has been watched more than 13 million times on YouTube.

Speaking ahead of the announcement of this year’s match, one of the Sidemen, Vikkstar123, said: “After last year's success, we're very excited to be running this event again. It's a great way to provide something unique for our fans and raise money for good causes.

“Additionally, we're looking forward to directly contributing towards the local community and raising awareness of the CACT.”

Charlton Athletic Community Trust CEO Jason Morgan said: “The reach and power of social media is incredible and this event shows how impactful and successful this has been previously.

“CACT has been exploring how social media can help us reach out to more young people and engage them on projects like our youth service provision, run on behalf of Royal Greenwich Borough, and we are looking forward to working with the Sidemen to help achieve this.

“The charity will also receive half the proceeds from the game and we thank all involved for selecting CACT and allowing us to continue to support our local community.”

Charlton Athletic CEO Katrien Meire said: “We are very pleased to be hosting a game like this at The Valley. It provides a great opportunity for us to reach a new audience. Most importantly though it will raise a lot of money for charity.”
