Bid to Play on your Field of Dreams!

Bid to Play on your Field of Dreams!

It's that time of year again: the weather is wetter, money is minimal and New Year's resolutions are already redundant. But fear not: Football Aid are here to brighten up those January blues with the return of the spectacular annual event, the unique and fantastic Football Aid January Auction!

Together with the support of over twenty-five clubs around the UK, Football Aid are looking to raise even more money for a variety of charitable causes, as the launch of the fiercely competitive Football Aid auction gets underway. Imagine the pride in seeing your shirt hanging up in the changing room, the thrill of running through the tunnel and the adrenaline of playing on the pitch that your heroes have graced before you…

A host of club legends including Gary McAllister, David Busst and Football Aid's Vice Patron, Danny McGrain have all supported Football Aid in previous years, either managing or playing alongside football fans as they graced the hallowed turf.

The 2009 Football Aid Auction at www.footballaid.com is already shaping up to be extremely exciting, with the new Maximum Bid and Buy Now options already proving very popular with bidders! Bidding positions will continue to close at regular intervals throughout the bidding period with the first position closing on the 3rd February and the last available positions closing on the 4th March.

So with bidding starting from only £170, there really is no better time to grab yourself the ultimate January bargain! So if you're a dynamic defender, a midfield magician or a silky striker, there are positions to suit every player!

All funds raised from the events are distributed through Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams and split between diabetes research programmes, and charities nominated by participating clubs. Football Aid has so far awarded over £1.3M to charitable causes since the company was set up in 2000, and has enabled nearly 10,000 football fans to pull on their favourite club's colours and grace the hallowed turf of the club they support. Please visit www.footballaid.com or alternatively contact the sales team at info@footballaid.com to find out how you can Live the Dream.
