Manchester United Foundation have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces
with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to grace the hallowed turf and play on
their Field of Dreams at Old Trafford on Thursday 17th May 2012, while at the same time raising
funds for charity.

Our magical event allows United supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ in an authentic match day
experience. Players will gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own
personalised shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering
crowd and ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent their club in a never to be
forgotten 90 minutes of football.

The matches have also been supported by a host of Red Devil legends, with the likes of Denis
Irwin, Bryan Robson, Lou Macari, Clayton Blackmore and many more all lending their
valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely
enjoyable matches at Old Trafford.

Securing your position couldn’t be easier, just visit, and select Manchester
United. Positions are available to Buy Now, and for Bidding (with positions closing on Tue 13th,
Wed 14th and Thu 15th March). Please see the Team Map at the bottom of the team page for

So if you’re keen to secure your place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit today to make sure you’re part of the team! Alternatively if you’d like any

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 12,225 football
fans the chance to ‘Live the Dream’ in more than 460 matches. They are a groundbreaking
organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic
stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football
Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable
project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field
of Dreams.

    Sounds a fantastic day-out in mid May.
    Interesting the ex Reds that provide support, still part of the United family, naturally.
    Great cause also.
