Football Aid Statement

We are saddened to inform you that Football Aid Trading Limited is ceasing to trade from the 1st December 2021.

It is with a deep sense of sorrow that we must inform all our customers, suppliers, supporters and partners that due to the severe disruption caused by Covid-19 over the last 2 years, along with increasingly difficult trading conditions, the Board of Directors of Football Aid Trading Limited have made the difficult decision to cease trading. The company will shortly be placed in the hands of a Liquidator who will be in touch with anyone directly affected by this situation in due course.

Whilst we recognise and share the disappointment felt by many, we hope that you will understand that we have not come to this decision lightly and will reflect positively on the record of achievements over the 20 years of operations. Working with fantastic partners, we delivered incredible experiences for over 20,000+ people at 750 events, which generated significant goodwill for the football industry and allowed us to donate £2.4million to a wide range of very worthy charitable causes. For that, we would like to record our deepest thanks to everyone who has helped make a difference to people around the world during our time.

Player Stories

Many of us dream what it would be like to play for our club. You have a well organised system that creates that very situation and it was great to see all the minor details had been included. It’s also great to see former players (like Lee Carsley) give up their time and come along and join in, adding to the whole occasion.

Founder's Quote

"The ultimate goal is to support those in need as recognised by our partner clubs whether local, national or international charitable causes. It's not only funding that matters here, you just can't monetise the feeling of support when you know your club cares and recognises your contribution. That's the power of football ... that's the end game."
