Football Aid 2015 – Play at Ewood Park!

20 January 2015

How would you like the chance to Bid to Play at Ewood Park in a 90 min match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your opportunity as Blackburn Rovers FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid - www.footballaid.com - to provide fans with the opportunity to create their very own piece of club history by playing at Ewood Park in 2015 while raising 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 Tom Cairney, Grant Hanley, Jordan Rhodes and co do every other week. As a player you'll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Blackburn Rovers replica shirt in the official changing rooms, experience the thrill of walking down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out onto the hallowed turf proudly sporting your full kit and represent your team 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 Gallacher, Colin Hendry, Mark Atkins, Tony Parkes, Glenn Keeley (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 period and securing a position couldn't be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com 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. Positions close at regular intervals until Thursday 5th March and opening Bids start from just £165.   

Blackburn Rovers fan Harry Hall took part in 2014 and told Football Aid about his experience after the event:

"I would just like to thank you for the whole experience playing on Ewood Park, it was absolutely amazing. The whole set up was very professional and extremely well organised and I would 100% love to play again and will definitely try to get a position as soon as they come out for Blackburn Rovers next year... I'm a lifelong Blackburn supporter and it meant everything to me to play at Ewood Park. Thanks again."
