FOOTBALL AID 2020
Our Wigan Athletic match, scheduled to be played at DW Stadium on Wed 6th May 2020, is currently Sold Out.
However positions could become available again if we have any cancellations. Therefore we'd advise you to keep an eye on this page for updates, or e-mail us at email@example.com if you'd like to be placed on a reserve list.
Event Update: At this time we haven't received any updates from the club to suggest this year's game will definitely be affected by the vitally important measures currently being taken to deal with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the UK. However we will of course post updates on this page if we do receive any notification of changes to the scheduled date. In the meantime we'd encourage all those keen to take part to continue to support our charity by securing any positions still available in our games.
Football Aid 2015
Our 2015 game at the DW Stadium was a hugely enjoyable event for all involved and we'd like to say a massive thanks again to our fans for their excellent efforts on the pitch and Legends Neill Rimmer and Joe Parkinson for their fantastic support on the day.

History & Background
The Latics were originally welcomed into the Football Aid family in 2005 to host a 'Legends Master Class' at the club's academy and they continued to host training day events up until 2007. Reserve Team Coach at the time, David Lowe and former Wigan winger, David Lee ran the show in 2006, putting fans through the drills, thrills and spills experienced by pro footballers during training sessions, while Lee McCulloch was also onside to stamp his seal of the approval on the event, explaining, "It's great to see others put through their paces for once!".
Thanks to the excellent support of the Wigan Athletic Community Trust we were able to host our 1st ever game at the DW Stadium on the 10th May 2015. The debut game at the stadium featured Latics Legends Neill Rimmer and Joe Parkinson and was a huge success with all the supporters involved.
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.
