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

Having been involved in football sponsorship over the years, and participated in many hospitality and corporate events. I have to say, that from the start to the finish the event was first class, and an amazing experience. 

Thanks again, and rest assured that I will be telling everyone I know about how good my experience was.

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."
