Bid to Play at Ewood Park!

Bid to Play at Ewood Park!

It's that time of year again: the weather is wetter, money is minimal and New Year's resolutions are already redundant. But fear not: Football Aid are here to brighten up those January blues with the return of the spectacular annual event, the unique and fantastic Football Aid January Auction!

Together with the support of Blackburn Rovers, Football Aid are looking to raise even more money for a variety of charitable causes, as the launch of the fiercely competitive Football Aid auction gets underway. Imagine the pride in seeing your shirt hanging up in the changing room, the thrill of running through the tunnel and the adrenaline of playing on the pitch that your heroes have graced before you…

A host of club legends including Kevin Gallacher, Colin Hendry and Simon Ireland have all supported Football Aid in previous years, either managing or playing alongside Rovers fans as they graced the hallowed turf.

The 2009 Football Aid Auction at is already shaping up to be extremely exciting, with the new Maximum Bid and Buy Now options already proving very popular with bidders! Bidding positions will continue to close at regular intervals throughout the bidding period with the first position closing on the 3rd February and the last available positions closing on the 4th March.

So with bidding starting from only £170, there really is no better time to grab yourself the ultimate January bargain! So if you are fantastic up-front like McCarthy, marshal the midfield like Ryan Nelsen or a wing wizard like Morten Gamst Pederson, there are positions to suit every player wishing to take part in this event at Ewood Park!

All funds raised from the events are distributed through Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams and split between diabetes research programmes, and charities nominated by participating clubs. Football Aid has so far awarded over £1.3M to charitable causes since the company was set up in 2000, and has enabled nearly 10,000 football fans to pull on their favourite club's colours and grace the hallowed turf of the club they support. Please visit or alternatively contact the sales team at to find out how you can Live the Dream.

Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
