AFTER MATCH FEEDBACK
“Thank you, it was amazing! Playing with all the ex pros in such a quality stadium made it a very memorable experience.
This is the third year that I’ve been waiting to play at the Jose Alvalade and I wasn’t disappointed. The tempo of the game was perfect for a very warm sunny day. Having all the ex pros play meant everyone got plenty of touches and no one was playing for themselves which made the experience of playing even better. I’ve told a lot of my friends who play football all about it. Thank you once again Football Aid, I’ll definitely be back to play at another stadium.”
