The recorded live stream was initially removed due to copyright but was then reinstated.

Those trying to watch this morning were greeted by a message that read: “This video contains content from FA Premier League, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.”

A perplexed KSI tweeted: “Lmao how is this even possible?”

Fans also hit out at YouTube, saying: “Imagine striking a charity event.”

Another added: “This makes no sense.”

The video seemed to be unavailable for a few hours before the problem was sorted and the video was restored to the site.

It has been viewed an incredible 22 million times in eight days and 2.7 million tuned in to watch live on October 9.

Sidemen FC ran out 8-5 winners over the YouTube All-Stars.


The match, hosted at West Ham’s London Stadium, raised a sensational £2.4m for charity, with £250,000 coming from KSI and Logan Paul’s energy drink brand Prime.

A sell out crowd packed into the stadium to see highlights like Sidemen pal Manny net a hat-trick and host Elz the Witch stun in a bold outfit.

Other best bits came from KSI playing as a goalkeeper, streamer IShowSpeed having a bust-up with rival Angry Ginge and YouTube comedian Max Fosh play a trick on ex-Premier League ref Mark Clattenburg.
