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

Well now’s your chance as Sheffield United 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 Bramall Lane in 2016, while raising valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Blades fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Jay McEveley, David Edgar, Billy Sharp and co do every other week. As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Sheffield United 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 Blades in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at Bramall Lane have also been supported by a host of fantastic Blades legends in recent years, with the likes of Tony Currie, Carl Bradshaw, David Holdsworth, Georges Santos and Mark Todd 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 £145 and securing a position couldn’t be easier, just visit and choose the Sheffield United 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. Positions close at regular intervals throughout the bidding period, with the 1st positions closing on Tue 9th Feb and the final positions closing on Wed 9th March.

Blades fan Adrian Landers took part in a previous year and told Football Aid all about his experience:

“Just to say thank you for a fantastic night at Bramall Lane, and thank you for the trophy (which I have looked at every 3 hours since receiving!), and thank you for the kind words before I received the Moment of the Match trophy. I keep trying to believe it really happened but I haven’t succeeded yet! I didn’t think it possible to have a better night at Bramall Lane than the one I had for the Football Aid game in 2008 but last week was indeed even better.

“Everything was top class (apart from my finishing?). The organisation, the Legends, the ceremony afterwards, I could list everything that I saw from when I turned up to when I walked out to the car park in a state of joy and shock at the end of the night! To put it simply, what a great night that was! I will write more feedback when I finally believe it happened!”

So if you’re keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit and sign up today! If you’d like any additional information, you can call Football Aid on tel: 0131 220 5999, e-mail:, post on their Facebook page: or send a tweet to @FootballAid.
