How would you like to ‘Live The Dream’ at Ewood Park and take part in a truly memorable 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now’s your chance as Blackburn Rovers have once again joined forces with Football Aid – – to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their very own piece of club history by playing at Ewood Park in 2016, while raising valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid are celebrating 15 years of organising charity matches all over the UK and Blackburn Rovers have leant their fantastic support from day one of the journey. The unique partnership offers Rovers fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Grant Hanley, Ben Marshall and Jordan Rhodes do every other week. As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Blackburn Rovers replica shirt in the official changing rooms, experience the thrill of walking down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and step out onto the hallowed turf proudly sporting your official playing kit and represent Rovers in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at Ewood Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Rovers legends in recent years, with the likes of Kevin Gallacher, Damien Johnson, Glenn Keeley, Mark Atkins (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 and choose the Blackburn Rovers 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 Fri 29th Jan 2016.

Blackburn fan Tommy Pomfret took part in 2015 and told Football Aid all about his experience after the game:

“The magnitude of Football Aid strikes you at different times throughout your experience. It starts by turning your stomach upside down when you arrive at the stadium and realise that you’re there to play, not spectate. It raises the hair on your neck when you see your name on the team kit hanging in the changing rooms, alongside former legends of the club. It sends your adrenaline glands into overdrive when you walk down the tunnel and you hear the cheers from friends and family in the crowd. Then it loses you in the moment when you find yourself pumping your fist at the empty stand after your team has scored, as if it was a full house. Finally, it pats’ you on the back for helping to raise so much money for charitable causes and those in need. For as long as I can, I will be taking part in this brilliant event.”

So if you’re keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit and sign up today! If you’d like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on tel: 0131 220 5999, e-mail:, post on their Facebook page: or send a tweet to @FootballAid.

Funds raised from this year’s event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by The Blackburn Rovers Community Trust, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
