How would you like to ‘Live The Dream’ by running out at the Britannia and taking part in a truly memorable 90-minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now’s your chance as Stoke City FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid – – (the original and best when it comes to these events!) to provide fans with the opportunity to create their very own piece of club history by playing at the Britannia in 2015 while at the same time raising valuable funds for charity.

Football Aid offers Potters fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Asmir Begovic, Ryan Shawcross, Peter Crouch and co do every other week. As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Stoke City 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 full kit and represent your team in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at Stoke City have also been supported by a host of fantastic Potters legends in recent years, with the likes of Denis Smith, Carl Beeston, Wayne Biggins, Andy Cooke, Philip Heath, Amdy Faye, Mike McDonald, Carl Dickinson, Wayne Thomas, Andy Griffin (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Stoke City fan Michael Georgiou-Holden took part in 2014 and told Football Aid about his experience after the event:

“I just wanted to say as always the team was superb in making sure everyone gets their ‘Field of Dreams’ experience to the tee! This was my fourth year and it only got better. The work you do for charity is fantastic and I look forward to next year for another great day out. Thanks again to the team!”
