In 2012 van der Sar appeared in the Rest of the World team for the Soccer Aid 2012 charity game at Old Trafford.

van der Sar has set up his own Foundation which focuses on people living with the effects of brain damage, such as a brain haemorrhage, stroke or accident.

The Foundation was established after his wife suffered a stroke caused by a suspected brain haemorrhage in 2010.

In March 2016 van der Sar came out of retirement for one game to play for his former amateur side VW Noordwijk when their regular keeper was injured.

He showed no signs of rustiness and even managed to save a penalty.

After originally joining his fomer club Ajax as marketing director in 2013, van der Sar was promoted to his current role of Chief Executive Officer in November 2016.
