Football Aid - Chance Of A Lifetime

Football Aid - Chance Of  A Lifetime

One Week to win the footballing chance of a lifetime…

The Football Aid phenomenon is back for its seventh season bringing with it YOUR chance to win the opportunity to follow in your football heroes footsteps, pull on the revered shirt and play an adrenaline fuelled game on the sacred pitch of the Club you support.

There`s only 7 days until the final whistle is blown on the ultimate football giveaway you just can`t miss out!

If you spend your Saturdays in the stands, dreaming of scoring that winning goal, of running through the tunnel and hearing the roar of the crowd as you step out onto the hallowed turf, then Vital Football`s competition will suit you!

Time is already dribbling away so what are you waiting for, Live the Dream and take part in the chance to play with your football legends

Imagine this: you arrive at the players` entrance, only to meet club legends and managers who will be with you for the rest of your day. You change into your personalised first team strip in the TEAM changing rooms and you run out through the tunnel to the chants and cheers from your family and friends, all there to share the experience as you create your own piece of Club History. With Football Aid ambassadors including Wilf McGuiness, Danny McGrain and Kevin Gallacher, and with previous playing legends including the likes of Peter Beardsley, Steve Bull, Jeremy Goss and Ally McCoist, it certainly is a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Charity organisation Football Aid is giving one lucky user the chance to do all this for FREE. So Even if your soccer skills are more shaky than silky, you can still experience the thrills and spills, highs and lows, controversy and high drama of match day fever at your favourite club. All you have to do is answer this one simple question:
