Sidemen Charity Match 2023: Who is playing? KSI and IShowSpeed set to feature in SOLD OUT clash at London Stadium | The Sun
THE SIDEMEN are set for a huge charity match on September 9 with KSI and IShowSpeed among the stars to feature.
Two teams made up of internet stars will go head-to-head in front of a sold out 62,000 crowd at West Ham's London Stadium this Saturday.
12 months ago the social media sensations raised an incredible £1million for charities as Charlton's The Valley hosted the game.
The Sidemen team beat the YouTube All-Stars in a frantic match that finished 8-7.
Last year's event has been streamed 34million times.
But things are set to be even bigger this time round to the delight of good causes Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), Teenage Cancer Trust and Rays of Sunshine.

IShowSpeed is the man to watch for the YouTube All-Stars – the streamer may not be the best player on the pitch but managed to floor KSI with a brutal slide tackle after 20 seconds last year and then begun celebrating.
