How would you like to live your dream of running out at Villa Park alongside a Villa legend before taking part in a 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?
Well now’s your chance as Aston Villa Football Club has once again joined forces with Football Aid – www.footballaid.com – to give fans the opportunity to play at Villa Park in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.
Football Aid offers Villa fans the unique opportunity to experience a match day in the same way the likes of Christian Benteke, Gabriel Agbonlahor and company do every other week. Players will gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised shirts in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out on the hallowed turf to represent Villa in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!
To add to that, the matches at Villa Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Villa legends in recent years, with the likes of Tony Morley, Shaun Teale, Lee Hendrie, Mark Kinsella, Gary Shaw and Mark Walters to name but a few all lending their extra special support by playing alongside, or managing, the fans on their big day.
Securing your position couldn’t be easier. Just visit www.footballaid.com and choose the Aston Villa games and then you’ll have two fixed price options: Option 1: Buy Now – Book your place with a one off payment or Option 2: Sponsored to Play – Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance any time before the 31st January 2014.
Villa fan James Close came all the way from South Africa to take part in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience after last year’s event:
“The entire day was absolute magic and you made my dream come true! I think once I watch the DVD and watch myself walking out of the tunnel with my son and brother, (and cringe at my mistakes), it will sink in that I actually played at Villa Park. All the Football Aid staff were excellent (and so were the Villa staff, for that matter) not just with the players – all of the supporters who came with me said they were made to feel special from the moment they arrived. I will keep spreading the Football Aid word as I am sure many more football fans would love this opportunity.”

Since forming in 2001, Football Aid has allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to live the dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year’s events will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Aston Villa, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
