FOOTBALL AID 2020
Due to the important health measures currently being taken to deal with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK, and the subsequent impact it has had on the scheduling of the English football season, Blackburn Rovers FC have informed us that they have taken the decision to postpone the 2020 Football Aid event (scheduled for Thursday 16th April 2020) at Ewood Park.
We will be in regular contact with the club to discuss all possible dates for the re-arranged game, and we will of course keep all our players informed by e-mail in the coming weeks as we receive more information from the club. Due to the ongoing situation within the football industry, and the uncertainty surrounding the completion of the 2019/20 Season, it may well be the case that the rearranged date will be in 2021.
If you weren't able to secure a position originally and would like to receive updates about the re-scheduled game, then please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Football Aid 2019
Our 2019 game at Ewood Park was another hugely enjoyable event for all involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to our Rovers fans for their excellent efforts on the pitch and Playing Legends David Dunn and Kevin Gallacher for their fantastic support on the night.

HISTORY & BACKGROUND
Blackburn Rovers hold a special place in our history, with them being the 1st English club to sign up to host a Football Aid game. That game kicked off on the 3rd May 2001 with ex-pros Glenn Keeley and Alan Ainscrow in attendance and it started an unbroken run of games at Ewood Park ever since! Fans' favourites like David Dunn, Colin Hendry, Mark Atkins, Damien Johnson, Tony Parkes, Simon Garner, Mark Patterson, Alan Kelly, Simon Ireland, Richard Brown, Marlon Broomes and Chris Sulley have all joined in the fun over the years and we were honoured to sign up Kevin Gallacher as our club Ambassador in 2006.
Our games at Ewood Park are organised in association with the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust and we're privileged to have their valuable support.
Football Aid could certainly be described as a game of two halves. On one side we’re fulfilling fans’ lifelong ambitions to grace the hallowed turf at the club they support. At the same time, we’ve raised significant funds for a host of charity and community projects on a regional, national and international scale. This perfect balance is changing lives, making dreams come true and benefiting the beautiful game.
