Soccer Aid for Unicef unveils first 2020 line-up

To help stop the spread of coronavirus and limit the impact on children’s lives, a mixture of celebrities and former professionals will ‘Play for Generation Covid’, raising money through donations that will be matched and thus tripled by the UK Government and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance.

Does YouTube need TV?

“YouTube is an amazing platform – you can build an audience and you know that they’re there to see you,” said football freestyler Daniel Cutting. “I don’t think my audience – kids between 8 and 13 or 14 – watch TV.”
He has more than 250,000 YouTube subscribers and more than half a million Instagram followers watching his football tricks. “On TV you don’t get to know the person; they’re kind of distant. [Online, viewers] can engage, comment and like, and potentially get a response from someone. YouTubers are becoming the new celebrities,” he said.
