The Sidemen Charity Match 2022 boasted a roster with some of the largest creators on YouTube, and its immense success prompted KSI to tease another match coming in 2023.

It had been four years since the last Sidemen Charity Match, and the crossover sporting event returned as a huge success in 2022. With Sidemen FC winning 8-7 and fans raising over $1 million, this was easily one of the most successful charity events on YouTube.

Not only did it feature members of the beloved Sidemen group, but the Charity Match showcased the athletic abilities of other massive YouTubers. MrBeast, iShowSpeed, GeorgeNotFound, and more took to the pitch to raise money for four charities.
