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

History & Background
Saturday 10th of July 2004 was a momentous day for Tartan Army fans of all ages, as Football Aid's 1st ever International events kicked off at the home of Scottish football, Hampden Park. Held in association with BT Scotland, the SFA and Hampden Park Ltd, 4 x matches took place on the hallowed turf and Scotland legends, Danny McGrain, Gordon McQueen, Gary McAllister, John McGinlay and Tosh McKinlay were all in action throughout the day.
In the years that followed we continued to attract the support of some of the biggest names in Scottish football, with ex-Internationals like Paul Lambert, Scott Booth, Simon Donnelly, Darren Jackson, Andy Walker, John Collins, Alan Rough, Alan McLaren and Football Aid board member Pat Nevin all involved in the hugely successful games at Hampden Park between 2004-2013.
We hosted our 1st ever England vs Scotland International at MK Dons' stadiummk on 10th May 2016, with the match providing our fans with the unique opportunity to experience the extra special atmosphere of the oldest International fixture in world football. There was certainly plenty of pride and passion on display, with the hotly contested encounter ending in a 6-1 win for the impressive England team.
The Auld Enemy clash moved to Everton's Goodison Park in 2017 and featured former Internationals David Unsworth as England Manager and Kevin Gallacher as Scotland's Playing Legend, and this time the Scotland team took the honours with a brave, come from behind 5-3 win.
We're delighted to announce the next chapter in our Scotland International story will be the Scotland vs Rest of the World game at Heart of Midlothian's Tynecastle Park in Football Aid 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.
