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 football season across Europe, we were keen to keep our lines of communication open with you in relation to the situation here at Football Aid and our unique Live The Dream events.
We are in regular contact with all of our partner clubs, due to the ongoing situation within the football industry, and the uncertainty surrounding the completion of the 2019/20 Season. We are preparing for the eventuality that our events scheduled for April and May will be rescheduled to a later date, with the distinct possibility that some of the rescheduled dates may now be in 2021. We will of course keep all of our players informed by e-mail in the coming weeks as and when we receive more information from our clubs.
If you have any questions we’re more than happy to advise further, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Please take my greatest praise for the day I had on Thursday (9th May) ay Celtic park.
All your staff on hand during the day were exceptional and I could not fault a single thing! I’d say the day ranked up there along with the birth of my children and wedding day as one of the best days of my life!!Read more
Football Aid 2019
Our 2019 games at Celtic Park were hugely enjoyable events for all those involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to our Celtic players for their excellent efforts on the pitch and Legends Danny McGrain and Joe Miller for their fantastic support on the day.

History & Background
Celtic were the 1st club to sign up with Football Aid and with the Glasgow giant's support, other clubs were quick to follow suit, with 47 games played in 45 Clubs around the UK in our debut season in 2001! Prominent Diabetes campaigner and Scotland legend Danny McGrain is the Club's Ambassador, as well as Football Aid's Vice Patron, and over the years, thanks to his endless passion for our cause, we've been able to call on a who's who of Celtic Legends, with the likes of Paul Lambert, Neil Lennon, Joe Miller, Tom Boyd, Andy Walker, Darren Jackson, Tosh McKinlay, Bobby Petta, George McCluskey, John Kennedy and Mark Burchill all playing in our games, while Billy McNeill, Bertie Auld and Bobby Lennox have all relished their roles as Managers.
Our games at Celtic Park are organised in association with the Celtic FC Foundation and we're extremely 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.
