Football Aid 2013 - Play at the Britannia Stadium!

Football Aid 2013 - Play at the Britannia Stadium!

Stoke City FC have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to grace the hallowed turf and play on their Field of Dreams at the Britannia Stadium in 2013, while at the same time raising funds for charity.

Our magical event allows Stoke supporters to "Live the Dream" in an authentic match day experience. Players will gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent their club in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.

The matches have also been supported by a host of Potters legends, with the likes of Denis Smith, Carl Beeston, Wayne Biggins, Andy Cooke and Amdy Faye all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at the Britannia Stadium, which was in partnership with the Stoke City Community Programme.

Securing your position couldn't be easier, just visit and choose your club, then you'll have two ways to secure your Fixed Price position: Option 1: 'Buy Now' - Our quickest and most popular option, or Option 2: 'Sponsored to Play' - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit to secure your position and then simply pay off the remaining balance anytime before 25th January 2013.

So if you're keen to secure your place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit today to make sure you're part of the team! Alternatively if you'd like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999 or email

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 13,090 football fans the chance to "Live the Dream" in more than 501 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.

Due to the huge interest we've received many of the 90min positions have already been sold, however additional positions (currently showing as 'Unavailable') will be opened for sale in our Auction Bidding period that starts in January 2013. If you make sure and Register on the website, you'll receive notification by e-mail when Bidding starts.
