Manchester City have once again joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to play on the hallowed turf of the City of Manchester Stadium on Monday 18th April, while raising vital funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers City fans the opportunity to "Live the Dream" of an authentic match day experience; to gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised club shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and ultimately to step out onto their Field of Dreams and represent their club in a never-to-be-forgotten 90 minute match.

The matches have been supported by a host of former players down the years, with Andy Hinchcliffe, Ian Brightwell, Richard Edghill and Mike Doyle lending their valuable experience by playing alongside or managing supporters.

Selected 45 min & 90 min Buy Now positions are still available in both Game 1 and Game 2 with positions starting at £175, so just visit, select Manchester City and your position, then place your bid – it really is that simple.

Alternatively if you’d like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on 0131 220 5999 or email

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 12,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in more than 420 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. Manchester City’s nominated cause in 2010 was the City in the Community.
