And thanks to Football Aid, you can now live the dream! The beautiful game's favourite football charity is back for 2006, giving YOU the chance to experience the thrills and spills, highs and lows, controversy and high drama of match day at Upton Park!

Now entering its sixth season, Football Aid has delivered over 250 games on a UK Club, European and National stage, enabling 7000 fans to follow in their footballing heroes' footsteps and pull on the revered jersey, run through the tunnel and play an adrenaline fuelled 90 minutes at the stadiums graced by their idols. With former Club legends captaining and managing the events, it's a day that lives long in the memory and an opportunity not to be missed!

Whilst experiencing the chance of a lifetime, fans are also contributing significantly to a wide range of deserving charities, locally, nationally and around the globe, with the funds raised through participation. With Football Aid's multi-beneficiary grant award scheme, funds raised go to Diabetes research, education and management and are also shared with charities nominated for funding by the Clubs. Football Aid were delighted to award a grant of £1,136 to Richard House Children's Hospice as a result of the Football Aid event at Boleyn Ground last year. The grant goes towards the cost of a Play and Care Worker within the Hospice.

Sir Bobby Robson, Football Aid's Patron comments: "Football Aid provides a fantastic opportunity for Clubs to give something back to their fans, a thanks for their continued support, and simply by playing a game on the pitch of the Club they love, fans are making a huge difference to the lives of so many others. It's a win-win situation and I believe everyone in Football can be proud of what we have achieved together so far."
