Football Aid 2012 - Bid to Play at The Etihad!

Football Aid 2012 - Bid to Play at The Etihad!

Manchester City FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf at The Etihad Stadium in 2012, while raising vital funds for charity and City in the Community (CITC).

The magnificent Football Aid event offers the supporters to 'Live the Dream' at the outstanding the Etihad. Offering the chance for City fans to 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 ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent City in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.



New for this season will be exclusive match commentary on the game from BBC Radio Manchester along with former City greats as guest pundits. A fantastic addition the matchday DVD!

The matches have also been supported by a host of City legends down the years, with the likes of Andy Hinchcliffe, Paul Simpson, Richard Edghill and Ian Brightwell all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at The Etihad Stadium.



Getting involved couldn't be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com, select Manchester City and your position, then place your bid - it really is that simple. And with most starting bids for positions at just £170, booking a position could turn out to be the best bargain you'll ever bag! Bidding is open from now until the middle of March, depending on what position you want to play.



So if you're keen to secure your place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit www.footballaid.com today to make sure you're part of the team! Alternatively if you'd like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999 or email info@footballaid.com.

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 12,225 football fans the chance to "Live the Dream" in more than 460 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.

I wish I had had the opportunity when I was younger, it is a dream for those still able to play. I rember the thrill of their being nets in the goals for the first time, before then it was just a pair of jumpers or a set of goalposts with no nets. To play on a pitch such as the Etihad is probably like playing on a snooker table, the surface flat and smooth, compared the the bogs you used to playon.
