HOW WOULD YOU like to Live Your Dream of running out at the Britannia alongside a Stoke City legend before taking part in a 90-minute match on the hallowed turf?
Well now's your chance as Stoke City FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid to give fans the opportunity to play at the Britannia Stadium on Wednesday 7th May 2014 (kick off 6.30pm) and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.
Football Aid offers Potters fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Asmir Begovic, Ryan Shawcross, Jonathan Walters and co 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 pitch 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.

Stoke City fan Nathan Moore played in last year's Football Aid and told us about his experience:
"We were made to feel like real superstars on the day by the professional attention to detail and all the care taken to ensure our day was better than we could ever have imagined.
"From walking into the dressing room and seeing my shirt hanging up, then out to do the warm up, to leading the away team out as captain was a special moment for myself. topped off by getting the man of the match award!
"Thank you once again to everyone involved and look forward to playing in future Football Aid matches."
