FOOTBALL AID 2020/21
Our 1st ever Walsall game was due to be played at the Banks's Stadium on Friday 15th May 2020, however it had to be re-scheduled due to the Covid-19 restrictions in the UK.
We remain in communication with the club as we look to confirm a re-scheduled date for our game and as soon as we get an update we'll e-mail all our players and post full details here. Selected positions could become available again when the game is re-arranged and you can see full details on the Walsall Game 1 page in the Upcoming Fixtures.
If you're interested in Living the Dream at the Banks's Stadium and you'd like to be kept informed when positions go back on sale then make sure and REGISTER on the website or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was my first time playing in a Football Aid event and I must say my expectations were exceeded. From the upfront communication through to the set up on the day it felt like a really well run operation. What struck me most was the effort you and the team went to make the day special for each person. I will definitely be re-applying.Read more

EVENT HISTORY & BACKGROUND
We're delighted to announce we'll be hosting our 1st ever match with Walsall FC in Football Aid 2020.
The West Midlands club were founded in 1888 after Walsall Swifts and Walsall Town merged to form Walsall Town Swifts, with the club becoming Walsall FC in 1895. The Saddlers played for over 94 years at Fellows Park before moving to their current home, the Banks's Stadium, in 1990. The 11,300 capacity stadium was officially opened by Sir Stanley Matthews and has hosted England under-21, under-19 and under-17 international matches as well as England women's international matches.
We're extremely excited to have The Saddlers on board and look forward to allowing their fans the chance to Live the Dream at the Banks's Stadium on Friday 15th May 2020.
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.
