IF YOU'RE THINKING of getting something extra special for the Potters fan in your life this Christmas, why not gift them the ultimate present: a chance to play for their team on the hallowed Britannia Stadium turf!
Stoke City have teamed up with Football Aid once again to offer fans the unique opportunity to play at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday 7th May 2014 (kick off 6.30pm), and with proceeds from the game going to the Club's Community Trust it won't just be your loved ones who benefit this Christmas either.
Football Aid offers the perfect present for the football fanatic - the opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Ryan Shawcross, Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam do every other week.
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 step out on the hallowed turf and represent the Potters in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!
To add to that, the matches at the Britannia Stadium have also been supported by a host of fantastic Potters legends in recent years, with the likes of Denis Smith, Carl Beeston, Wayne Biggins, Andy Cooke, Amdy Faye, Carl Dickinson and many more all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Since forming in 2001, Football Aid have allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK, with over £2M being paid out or designated as payable to charities in the 12 years since. 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 Stoke City FC, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
