Football Aid 2018 - Positions Available Now!

Football Aid are delighted to announce the official launch of our 18th season providing football fans with the unique opportunity to Live the Dream on the hallowed turf!

We're very excited to be launching Football Aid 2018 with the historic news that we're partnering with Chicago Fire Soccer Club for our 1st ever MLS game on Saturday, March 24, 2018! We're also hosting our 1st ever USA International at Toyota Park on the same day and it's an absolute honour to be able to make games available for fans of U.S. soccer for the 1st time.

All charity funds raised from the games will benefit the Chicago Fire Foundation, the team's community-based charitable division. Since 1998 the Fire Foundation has made significant contributions to enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth throughout Chicagoland.

We're also delighted to announce that Swansea City have signed up to host their 1st ever Football Aid game at the Liberty Stadium, making them our 1st ever Welsh Club side. We're also thrilled to announce West Bromwich Albion will be hosting their 1st game at The Hawthorns since 2015 and we hope to have news of more partner clubs signing up soon.   

Book a place in Football Aid 2018 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!
