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

Football Aid 2019
Our 2019 game at Old Trafford was a hugely enjoyable event for all involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to all our fans for their excellent efforts on the pitch and former United Striker Danny Webber for his fantastic support on the day.

History & Background
Manchester United hosted their first Football Aid event in 2002, with fans flying in from all corners of the globe to pull on the famous red shirt and grace the Old Trafford turf. United Legends Brian McClair and Bryan Robson were onside to thrill the fans with their skills in that 1st game and we've been fortunate to have the support of fellow Legends Clayton Blackmore, Denis Irwin, Lee Martin, Mickey Thomas, David May, Arthur Albiston, Wilf McGuinness and Danny Webber in our games since.
In 2010 we were honoured to announce Denis Law, CBE as our new Patron and The King has been a regular fixture at our matches since.
Our games at Old Trafford are organised in association with the Manchester United 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.
