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, 501 games involving 13,000 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'.
Recent additions to the Football Aid inventory include Celebrity Live the Dream, International Live the Dream and the Legends Master Class, a training event putting participants through the drills, thrills and spills experienced by professional footballers during training sessions.
... 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.
