Football Aid are delighted to be partnering with Saints Foundation to help organise their Play on the Pitch event in 2016/17, where a limited number of 12 Saints fans will have the opportunity to play at St. Mary’s Stadium against a team of Saints Legends. Saints Foundation is the official charity of Southampton FC, and invests over £2million into the local community each year, supporting young people and adults at risk across Southampton and the surrounding areas. All proceeds from this event will be invested into the local community through Saints Foundation’s projects.
Saints Foundation are giving supporters the chance to have the full player experience, culminating in a once in a lifetime event here at the home of Southampton FC. To brush up on their skills before the main event, the players will be invited for a full tour of the state-of-the-art Staplewood Training Centre a week or two before the match at St. Mary's, followed by a once in a lifetime opportunity to be trained by Claude Puel and his First Team coaching staff. On Sunday 28th May, our winners will be welcomed to the Stadium to take part in the specially organised match versus their heroes, walking out through the tunnel in the official Southampton FC kit, to then arrive onto the hallowed turf. The event will culminate with the winners joining their footballing icons for post-match refreshments in one of our luxury hospitality suites, where they will have the chance to share their stories and memories about Southampton FC.
