Bid to Play on your Field of Dreams

Bid to Play on your Field of Dreams

Football Aid have once again joined forces with the UK's biggest Football Clubs, allowing football fans the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf at the club they love in 2011, while raising vital funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid participants get the opportunity to Live the Dream of an authentic match day experience; to gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised club shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and ultimately to step out onto their Field of Dreams and represent their club in a never to be forgotten 90 minute match.

The matches are supported by former players of the clubs hosting the game. Down the years we have had the likes of Denis Irwin, Ally McCoist, Peter Beardsley, Jan Molby, Muzzy Izzet and Pat Nevin all take part playing alongside the supporters.

Getting involved couldn`t be easier; visit www.footballaid.com, select your club and your position, then place your bid - it really is that simple. And with starting bids for positions at just £170, booking a position could turn out to be the best bargain you'll ever bag! Bidding ends this week!

So if you're keen to secure your place on your Field of Dreams early why not visit www.footballaid.com. Alternatively if you`d like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999 or email info@footballaid.com.

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 12,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in more than 420 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
