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 team's official shirt in the changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and play a never to be forgotten 90 minutes on the hallowed turf.

Player Stories

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all at Football Aid for what was genuinely (engagement, marriage and birth of children aside) the best experience of my life on Friday night.

Playing 90mins under the flood lights with Pat (Nevin) and Lee (McCulloch), scoring a pen and getting MotM trophy with my son Jet there as a mascot was truly epic!

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."
