Football Aid 2014 – Bid to Play at Villa Park!


How would you like the chance to Bid to Play at Villa Park alongside a Villa Legend before taking part in a 90 min match on the hallowed turf?


Well now's your chance as Aston Villa FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid - www.footballaid.com - to give fans the opportunity to Live the Dream at Villa Park in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.


Football Aid offers Villa fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Benteke, Agbonlahor 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 hallowed turf and represent The Villa in a never to be forgotten 90 mins of football!


To add to that, the matches at Villa Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Villa Legends in recent years, with the likes of Tony Morley, Shaun Teale, Lee Hendrie, Mark Kinsella, Gary Shaw and Mark Walters (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.


Positions are now available in our Auction Bidding and securing a position couldn’t be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com and choose the Aston Villa games and then you’ll have two options:

Villa Fan James Close came all the way from South Africa to take part in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience after last year's event:


"The entire day was absolute magic and you made my dream come true!!! I think once I watch the DVD, and watch myself walking out of the tunnel, with my son and brother, (and cringe at my mistakes), it will sink in that I actually played at Villa Park. All the Football Aid staff were excellent (and so were the Villa staff for that matter). Not just with the players, but all of the supporters that came with me said they were made to feel special from the moment they arrived. I will keep spreading the Football Aid word as I am sure many more football fans would love this opportunity."
