Play at Bloomfield Road - The Perfect Xmas Gift!

Play at Bloomfield Road - The Perfect Xmas Gift!

If you're thinking of getting something extra special for the Blackpool fan in your life this Xmas, why not gift them the ultimate present: a chance to play for their team on the hallowed Bloomfield Road turf!

Blackpool FC have teamed up with Football Aid - www.footballaid.com - once again to offer fans the unique opportunity to play at Bloomfield Road in 2014, and with proceeds from the game going to the Blackpool FC Community Trust it won't just be your loved ones who benefit this Xmas either.

Football Aid offers the perfect present for the football daft family member - the opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Tom Ince, Angel Martinez, Kirk Broadfoot 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 hallowed turf and represent The Seasiders in a never to be forgotten 90 mins of football!



To add to that, the matches at Bloomfield Road have also been supported by a host of fantastic Blackpool legends in recent years, with the likes of Derek Spence, Terry Pashley, John Hills, Jamie Milligan, Ciaran Donnely, Marc Joseph (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 www.footballaid.com and choose the Blackpool FC game and then you'll have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment, or Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before the 31st Jan 2014.

Blackpool fan Stephen Eckersley (55) played in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience:

"I lasted 20 minutes at Bloomfield road but every minute will be a memory for the rest of my life. A big thank you to the Football Aid team. The legends were fantastic especially John Hills who kept shouting "Push on Eckers". Considering I'd never met any of my team before except the goalkeeper, we seemed to all get on pretty well before and during the match. To play at Blackpool FC was a dream come true and Football aid made it happen for me.
Thanks very much"


So if you're keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit www.footballaid.com and sign up today!

Since forming in 2001 Football Aid have allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's events will benefit the work of the Blackpool FC Community Trust, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
