Passion for Football...
The concept of Football Aid is simple - to allow fans, who have only been able to dream about it, the chance to experience the thrill of match day: to pull on their favourite shirt, walk down the tunnel to the sound of the crowd and play an adrenaline fuelled 90 minutes on the hallowed turf of the Club they support.
Since Football Aid's debut season in 2001, 645 games involving 17,100 players have taken place on a UK Club, European and National level and our vision is to continue to deliver exciting and groundbreaking fundraising events that allow supporters to 'Live the Dream'.
Our core events are the Live the Dream matches we run in association with our member clubs in the UK, but the Football Aid inventory also includes the International Live the Dream, Celebrity Live the Dream and Legends Master Class events as well.
... Compassion for Others
Football Aid was created as a unique way of raising money for charity and voluntary organisations. Through our parent charity, Field of Dreams' multi-beneficiary grant award scheme, the funds raised from the Football Aid events are distributed to diabetes research, education and management projects plus charities nominated for funding by the Clubs that take part. We're extremely proud to have donated over £2.3M in charitable grants since 2001 and for further information about our charitable awards, please visit the Field of Dreams' page.
