Play For Villa With Football Aid

Play For Villa With Football Aid

Football’s ultimate January Sales are underway giving you the chance to play for Aston Villa.

Football Aid is allowing you the chance to battle it out in our online auction against your fellow Villans fans to snap up one of the few remaining positions in our 2008 game at Villa Park. Or why not avoid the risk and secure your position using the Buy Now option available on selected places.

Live the Dream and experience the ultimate football experience by bidding online now at

Those lucky enough to secure their positions on the team sheet will be given the chance to pull on their team’s famous Claret and Blue shirt and play alongside Villa legends in a 90 minute match at Villa Park.

Gary Shaw and Ian ‘Chico’ Hamilton are just two of the stars who have either managed or played in our previous events and we hope to be able to call on the support of a similar calibre of legends this year.

Football Aid’s brand new bidding system features a number of improvements, including our automated “Proxy” bidding system, the option to Buy Now to end an auction early and our much improved Bid Monitoring system.

Bidding starts on the 16th January and positions will close at regular intervals throughout the six week bidding period, with the first position due to close on the 4th February and the last available position closing on the 29th February.

So why wait? Visit and select your team’s page to start bidding now!

Furthermore, you’ll be pitching in for a good cause, as funds raised from the event will go to your club’s nominated charity and Football Aid’s parent charity, Field of Dreams, towards diabetes research, education, and management or community projects.

If you would like to know anything else about this event, you can contact Football Aid directly by e-mail at

Gary Shaw and Chico Hamilton, two names from the past that conjure up memories of times gone by. Pity Chico didn't play for us at a more successful time. Both Gary and Chico were very popoular with the supporters.

I can play right full back - will that help my chances?
