It’s with great pleasure and huge excitement that we’re able to announce the official launch of Football Aid 2016. It promises to be an extra special season for Football Aid, as we’re celebrating 15 years providing fans with the unrivalled opportunity to Live the Dream on the hallowed turf, and to mark this magic milestone we’re unveiling a brand new anniversary logo!
We’re all set to kick off this landmark season in fine form with matches at many of the biggest clubs in the UK already available, and we’re also thrilled to announce that Lisbon giants Sporting Clube de Portugal have already signed up for 2016, and we're delighted to confirm we're able to make 2 x matches available at the impressive Estádio José Alvalade this season.
Sign up for Football Aid 2016 and you'll earn the right to pull on your very own exclusive personalised 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 your team in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

CHARITIES BENEFIT AS WELL!
Remember you'll also be raising valuable funds for charity at the same time, with the proceeds from all our events continuing to benefit the work of charitable projects nominated by our partner clubs, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams. Since our debut season in 2001, 16,285 football fans have taken part in 614 games all over the UK, Italy and Portugal, raising an incredible £2.2M for charity, and we hope to go on changing lives for the better and helping those in need for many more years to come.
