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

Unreal day playing at the Emirates this morning courtesy of Football Aid. My team won 5-2 and I had the pleasure of being managed by David O’Leary. Great catching up with Pat Rice again too!Read more
FOOTBALL AID 2019
Our 2019 game at The Emirates was a hugely enjoyable event for all involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to all our Arsenal players for their excellent efforts on the pitch.

HISTORY & BACKGROUND
Arsenal FC have been hosting our games since 2001 and in that time we've been fortunate to have the support of some fantastic Legends like David O'Leary, Pat Rice, Liam Brady, Kenny Sansom, Steve Bould, Perry Groves, Terry Neill and Chris Whyte. Football Aid even provided the perfect setting for a lucky group of Gooners to say an emotional farewell to Highbury, with our matches on 8th June 2006 amongst the last ever events to be played at the historic stadium.
Our games at The Emirates are organised in association with The Arsenal 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.
