Derby County 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 Pride Park in 2012, while at the same time raising funds for charity.

Our magical event allows Derby 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 Rams legends, with the likes of Roger Davies, Phil Gee, Marc Edworthy and many more all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at Pride Park.

Already ex-Rams stars Roger Davies and Archie Gemmill will oversee managerial roles for Football Aid, while Kevin Hector and Marc Edworthy will pull on their boots to play in the game – with the match date to be confirmed in due course.



Getting involved couldn’t be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com, select Derby County 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!

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.
