It was the first of their trilogy of charity matches.
On 6 March 2016, the Sidemen announced that they would be participating in - and hosting - a charity football match at St. Mary's Stadium in Southampton (home of Southampton F.C.) on 3 June 2016.
All money generated from ticket sales went towards the 'Saints Foundation' charity. All seven members of the Sidemen played on one team (along with a few others) called Sidemen F.C. and they played against a team of "YouTube Allstars". The teams were steadily announced on Twitter between March and May.
Ticket sales alone generated over £100,000 for the charity and the 'JustGiving' page added an additional £10,000+ to that figure. Donations can still be made via the link here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/SidemenFC.

- (C) = Captain (Miniminter and Calfreezy).
- (i) Until 1 June 2016, TheBurntChip was playing for the YouTube Allstars. He pulled out due to family issues. He was replaced by JMX.
- (ii) Until 27 May 2016, Caspar Lee was playing for Sidemen F.C. He pulled out due to scheduling conflicts and was replaced by 'hughwizzy'.
The final results of the match was 7-2 to Sidemen F.C.

|Joe Weller 72'|
- TBJZL has since said that his favourite moments from the match were when he scored the first "actual" goal of the match (which wasn't an own goal), as well as the fact that his brother Manny scored two. However, the moment that had the edge for him was when Vikkstar123 attempted to "back-heel" the ball.
