Football Aid 2019

Football Aid

How would you like to 'live the dream' at the Bet365 Stadium and take part in a truly memorable 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your chance! The Community Trust have once again teamed up with Football Aid to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history.

Supporters can play at the Bet365 Stadium on Monday 13th May 2019 (kick off 2.30pm), while raising valuable funds for the Community Trust at the same time.

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 17 years now and are regarded as the original and best in delivering the ultimate pitch day experience. The game offers fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Jack Butland, Ryan Shawcross, Joe Allen, Benik Afobe and the rest of the squad do every other week. 

As a player you'll get the chance to pull on your exclusive personalised Stoke City replica shirt in the official changing rooms, experience the thrill of walking down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out onto the hallowed turf proudly sporting your official playing kit and represent the Potters in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at the bet365 Stadium have also been supported by a host of fantastic club legends in recent years, with the likes of Terry Conroy, Denis Smith, Carl Beeston, Wayne Biggins, Andy Cooke, Philip Heath, Amdy Faye, Mike McDonald, Carl Dickinson, Wayne Thomas, Andy Griffin, Gareth Owen, John Ruggiero (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Stoke City fan Johnny Thomson took part in 2018 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game: “Just to say a big thank you once again for organising such a fantastic event. One of the best experiences ever! The venue, the game, the lads, the pitch, the legends, everything was perfect. 100% doing it again next year!!”

Since forming in 2001 Football Aid have allowed over 18, 000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 700 matches all over the UK, Europe and USA, while pledging over £2.4M for charity. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Founder Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the Stoke City Community Trust, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
