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

Well now’s your chance as Arsenal FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid – – (who are celebrating 15 years organising charity matches all over the UK!) to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their very own piece of club history by playing at The Emirates in 2016, while raising valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Gunners fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Petr Čech, Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis S├ínchez do every other week. As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Arsenal 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 The Gunners in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at The Emirates have also been supported by some fantastic Arsenal legends in recent years, with the likes of Perry Groves, Terry Neill, Chris Whyte and Steve Bould all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Positions are now available for Bidding from just £195 and securing a position couldn’t be easier, just visit and choose the Arsenal game and then you’ll have two options: Option 1: Bid to Play – Enter your Maximum Bid and if you’re the highest bidder when the position closes you’ll win your place on your Field of Dreams, or Option 2: Buy Now – Close the auction early and secure your place with a one off payment online.

Arsenal fan Joe Laing took part in a previous year and told Football Aid all about his experience after the game:

“Thank you for putting on an excellent event at The Emirates yesterday, it was a great occasion that will live long in the memory. The team on the ground were fantastic and helped make the day what it was. They were great with my daughter as well (she was the 14 months old mascot) so I wanted to thank them especially for that. Thanks again for a great day and I look forward to the next one!”
