Play at Ewood Park - The perfect gift!

8 December 2013

If you're thinking of getting something extra special for the Rovers fan in your life this Xmas, why not gift them the ultimate present: a chance to play at Ewood Park!

Blackburn Rovers FC have teamed up with Football Aid - - once again to offer fans the unique opportunity to play at Ewood Park in 2014, and with proceeds from the game going to club nominated charities it won’t just be your loved ones who benefit this Xmas either.

Football Aid offers the perfect present for the football daft family member - the opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Grant Hanley, David Dunn, Jordan Rhodes 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 Rovers in a never to be forgotten 90 mins of football!

To add to that, the matches at Ewood Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Rovers legends in recent years, with the likes of Kevin Gallagher, Colin Hendry, Mark Atkins, Tony Parkes (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Securing your position couldn’t be easier, just visit and choose the Blackburn Rovers game and then you’ll have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment, or Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before the 31st Jan 2014.

Rovers fan Gian Marco Serra came all the way from Italy to take part in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience after last year:

"What can I say?
Neither in my dreams I could think something like this year's experience.
Third time for me...and always better. Great people, this experience gave me the chance to meet again another culture: this is more important than football.
Thanks for everything, no other words.
Football Aid is amazing!"

Since forming in 2001 Football Aid have allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK, with over £2M being paid out or designated as payable to charities in the 12 years since. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's events will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Blackburn Rovers FC, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
