With World Cup fever set to take hold in the coming weeks, Weller and Battelle saw an opportunity to bring the UK rock scene together with one voice, to celebrate the occasion and achieve something positive for underprivileged children around the World.

Weller said: “There are few events that unite the World like the World Cup, it’s a time that everyone can forget their differences and unite through celebration and competition.  Many rock bands I work with are passionate about football, and this is a great opportunity to come together and raise some money for a very important cause.”

John Wroe, CEO of SCWC commented “Football United is an inspirational anthem representing the very best of the beautiful game and we are delighted to be a part of this project. At the Street Child World Cup we believe in the power of football to unite the world in support of street children’s rights. Our partnership with Football United will help this message reach people not only in the UK but across the world.”
