How would you like to 'Live the Dream' and take part in a truly memorable 90-minute match on the hallowed Ewood Park pitch?

Well now's your chance! Blackburn Rovers have once again teamed up with Football Aid to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history.

Supporters can play at Ewood Park on Thursday April 25th 2019, kick-off 7pm, while raising valuable funds for Blackburn Rovers Community Trust at the same time.

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 17 years and are regarded as the original and best in delivering this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The game offers fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Bradley Dack, Charlie Mulgrew, Elliott Bennett and the rest of the squad do every other week.

As a player, you'll get the chance to pull on your exclusive personalised 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 to proudly represent Rovers in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

Added to that, the matches at Ewood Park have also been supported by a host of iconic Rovers legends in recent years, with the likes of David Dunn, Kevin Gallacher, Damien Johnson, Mark Atkins, Glenn Keeley, Chris Sulley 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 you’ll then have two fixed price options:

Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment

Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before Friday January 25th 2019

Rovers fan Andrew Williams took part in the 2018 event and told Football Aid: “Firstly, a massive congratulations to Blackburn Rovers and everyone at Football Aid.

"Having played in one of these matches for the first time last night, I was so impressed with all the hard work and time you all put into these games for the many charities you support.

"Secondly, a massive thank you. Not only did I get to meet three of my idols when I was growing up, but I also got to play at Ewood Park. I'm 33 years old and last night I was like a kid at Christmas!

"The whole event, from arrival to leaving the Blues Bar, Blackburn Rovers and your team could not do enough to really make the experience special. With any feedback I always think of something which can be improved on, but on this occasion I can't."

So, if you're keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, visit and sign up today! For any additional information, call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999, email, visit or send a tweet to @FootballAid.

Since forming in 2001, Football Aid have allowed over 18,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in over 700 matches all over the UK, Europe and USA, while pledging over £2.4m for charity.

Funds raised from this season's event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
