To add to that, the matches have also been supported by a host of fantastic club legends in recent years, with the likes of Liam Brady, Pat Rice, Perry Groves, Terry Neill and Chris Whyte all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Arsenal fan Noel Brady took part in a previous year and told Football Aid about his experience after the game:

“This is a very big thank you to all of the Football Aid staff for giving me the opportunity of having an unforgettable experience. I am a lifelong Arsenal fan and therefore playing the Emirates was a dream come true! We were made to feel like real superstars on the day by your professional attention to detail and all the care taken to ensure our day was better than we could ever have imagined. Everyone should do it at least once in a lifetime as it is a day to talk about and relive forever.

This also goes for my son Mark who was lucky enough to be chosen as a mascot. You have no idea how happy this made my little boy feel, he will cherish the memory till he can go join you and play in one himself. Many thanks to all at Football Aid”
