How would you like to live your dream of running out at the Reebok Stadium alongside a Bolton legend, before taking part in a 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your chance, as Bolton Wanderers FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid - - to give fans the opportunity to play at the Reebok Stadium in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Bolton fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Zat Knight, Lee Chung-Yong, Jay Spearing and co do every other week. 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 step out on the pitch and represent the Trotters in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at the Reebok Stadium have also been supported by a host of fantastic Bolton legends in recent years, with the likes of Mike Whitlow, David Lee, Tony Kelly, Scott Green, Keith Branagan (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Positions are now available in our Auction Bidding and securing a position couldn't be easier. Just visit and choose the Bolton Wanderers 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 until Tue 12th March and opening Bids start from just £170.

Bolton fan Howard Fox came all the way from Australia to take part and told Football Aid about his experience:

"I had a blast - the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life - well worth every cent - mind you I think I'd had my money's worth by the 15min mark!

Everything was just perfect right down to the strip hanging up in the changing rooms. I've attached a bonus for me - it was the article in The Bolton News. The headline made the front page & the article was about half a page inside!

Once again thank you for all your efforts in helping me realise LIVING THE DREAM."

So if you're keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit and sign up today! Alternatively 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.

Since forming in 2001 Football Aid have allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's events will benefit the work of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
