Football Aid 2012 – Bid to Play at Ewood Park!

Blackburn Rovers FC have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to grace the hallowed turf and play on their Field of Dreams at Ewood Park in 2012, while at the same time raising funds for charity.

Our magical event allows Rovers supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ in an authentic match day experience. 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 ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent their club in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.

The matches have also been supported by a host of Rovers legends, with the likes of Kevin Gallagher, Colin Hendry, Mark Atkins and many more all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at Ewood Park.

Getting involved couldn’t be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com, select Blackburn Rovers and your position, then place your bid – it really is that simple. And with most starting bids for positions at just £170, booking a position could turn out to be the best bargain you’ll ever bag! Bidding is open from now until the middle of March, depending on what position you want to play.

So if you're keen to secure your place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit www.footballaid.com today to make sure you're part of the team! Alternatively if you’d like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999 or email info@footballaid.com.

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 12,225 football fans the chance to ‘Live the Dream’ in more than 460 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.

If you're the type of player that has to be involved from the first minute to the last, then Week 2 of our Auction Bidding should definitely appeal, with the 90 min No 9 and No 11 Centre Forward and No 10 Centre Midfield positions all closing in what promises to be a hugely exciting 3 days of Bidding!

Week 2 features the always popular 90 min No 9 (CF), No 10 (CM) and No 11 (CF) positions closing Tue 14th, Wed 15th and Thu 16th.

Home Team positions close at 15:00 pm with the Away Team closing at 16:00 pm. If you’re concerned about losing out in injury time, or won't be available to monitor your bid for any reason, make sure and use the automated Maximum Bid option and remember you can close an auction early by using the Buy Now option on selected positions.

So if you’ve not signed up yet, why not get involved in the auction action we’ve got lined up on the www.footballaid.com this week.

* Note that some of the No 9, 10 and 11 positions have already been secured in our Fixed Price period meaning availability might be limited at your club.

You might have thought the final whistle had blown on your chance to secure a position this season and had resigned yourself to watching from the stands...

Well fear not, because limited positions have been extended for bidding until this Wednesday the 7th March, meaning you still have the opportunity to bid for the chance to take part this season.

Hints and Tips:

- New positions could be opened at any time so make sure and keep checking your team right up until Wednesday afternoon

- Home positions close at 15:00pm and Away close at 16:00pm

- The Buy Now option might be available for selected positions

- If you've already secured a 1st half 45 min position it's possible to bid for a 2nd half place and double them up to play the full 90 mins

Don’t get left in the stands, visit the www.footballaid.com website now and make your bid to secure a place on your Field of Dreams!

Thanks again for your support and good luck if you do choose to bid for a position this season.
