Football Aid 2014 - Play at Ewood Park!

15 February 2014

How would you like to Live Your Dream of running out at Ewood Park alongside a Rovers Legend before taking part in a 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your chance as Rovers have once again joined forces with Football Aid - - to give fans the opportunity to play at Ewood Park on Thursday, 24th April 2014 (Kick-Off 7.00 pm) and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Rovers fans the unique 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 pitch and represent Blackburn Rovers in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes 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.

Positions are now available in our Auction Bidding and securing a position couldn’t be easier, just visit and choose the Blackburn Rovers game and then you’ll have two options: Option 1: Bid to Play – Enter your Maximum Bid and if you're the highest bidder when the position closes you'll win your place on your Field of Dreams, or Option 2: Buy Now – Close the auction early and secure your place with a one off payment online.

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!”
