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

Well now's your chance as Rovers have teamed up with Football Aid to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history by playing at Ewood Park, while raising valuable funds for the Blackburn Rovers Community Trust at the same time.

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 18 years now and are regarded as the original and best in delivering the ultimate pitch day experience.

The game offers fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Christian Walton, Elliott Bennett, Lewis Holtby, Bradley Dack 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 proudly sporting your official playing kit and represent Rovers in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!
