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

We look forward to seeing you ‘Live The Dream’ at a Football Aid event in the not too distant future.
Just wanted to say thank you for an amazing event at The Hawthorns on Friday (17th May), really was a top day and a great game for everybody concerned.
Just sad my lad didn't get on the score sheet but I'm sure he still enjoyed the experience especially with both his Dad and his Son on the pitch with him.Read more
Football Aid 2019
Our 2019 game at The Hawthorns was a hugely enjoyable event for all involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to all our Baggies fans and Legends Ally Robertson and Joe Mayo, who were on hand to Manage the teams and share their expert knowledge of the game with our players.

History & Background
West Brom have been onside from the start, with Cyrille Regis (RIP) and Derek Statham the superstars in stripes leading the way as playing Legends in our 1st ever game in 2001. Since then, the Black Country club have hosted numerous successful events and fellow Baggies Legends including Daryl Burgess, Bob Taylor, Richard Sneekes, Ally Robertson, Joe Mayo, Bernard McNally, Graham Williams, Stan Jones, Nicky Cross, Steve MacKenzie, Craig Shakespeare and Ian Hamilton have all had the chance to impart some of their invaluable experience to our lucky players.
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.
