Football Aid 2019 - Positions Available Now!

Football Aid are delighted to announce the official launch of our 19th season of providing football fans with the unique opportunity to Live the Dream on the hallowed turf!


Book a place in Football Aid 2019 and you'll earn the right to pull on your very own exclusive personalised replica shirt in the official changing rooms, experience the thrill of walking down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out onto the hallowed turf proudly sporting your official playing kit and represent your team in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!


Signing up to play couldn't be easier, just visit the Play page, choose your Team or Event and you'll then have two ways to secure your Football Aid 2019 Live the Dream position*.

  • OPTION 1: BUY NOW - Our quickest and most popular option, choose from a wide selection of positions available to Buy Now online.
  • OPTION 2: SPONSORED TO PLAY - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit to secure your position, then pay the remaining balance anytime before Friday 25th January 2019. We'll send you a Sponsorship Pack full of ideas to help with fundraising, however there's no obligation for players to raise the funds using Sponsorship methods; if you prefer you can simply make the instalment payment(s) yourself.

After choosing Option 1 or 2 and making payment online you'll be the proud owner of a Football Aid 2019 position, it's as simple as that!


We've already got 18 x Club games and 3 x Internationals available and hope to add more events soon**. Positions are currently available in all the following events: Arsenal, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Derby County, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield United, Sheffield Utd vs Sheffield Wed, Sunderland vs Newcastle Utd, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion, Celtic, England vs Italy at Selhurst Park, Wales vs Rest of the World at the Principality Stadium and our England Training Day at St. George's Park (Event details correct as of 06/12/18).

Remember you'll also be raising valuable funds for charity at the same time, with the proceeds from all our events continuing to benefit the work of charitable projects nominated by our partner clubs, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams. Since our debut season in 2001, 16,600 football fans have taken part in 705 games all over the UK, Italy, Portugal and USA, raising an incredible £2.2M+ for charity, and we hope to go on changing lives for the better and helping those in need for many more years to come.  

If you'd like any additional information, or would like to ask any questions about our games please call us on +44 (0)131 220 5999 or e-mail info@footballaid.com.

Thanks in advance if you do choose to support us this season.
