How would you like to 'Live The Dream' by running out at Macron Stadium and taking part in a truly memorable 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your chance, as Bolton Wanderers FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid - the original and best when it comes to these events - to provide fans with the opportunity to create their very own piece of club history by playing at Macron Stadium in 2015, while, at the same time, raising valuable funds for charity.

Football Aid offers Wanderers fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Lee Chung-Yong, Jay Spearing, Jermaine Beckford and co do every other week. As a player you'll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Bolton Wanderers 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 full kit and represent your team in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

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

Securing your position couldn't be easier. Just visit and choose the Bolton Wanderers game. Then, you'll have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment, or Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before Fri 30th Jan 2015.

Bolton Wanderers fan Mark Done took part in 2014 and told Football Aid about his experience after the event:

"From the moment we arrived to the end and leaving the ground, we were made to feel like true professional players and it was an experience that has to be tried. To follow in the footsteps of professional footballers is something that many won't experience, but if you're lucky enough to do it then you're in no better hands than that of Football Aid.

"I was lucky to play at Bolton and the setup was just amazing - pre-match massage and the sight of walking into the changing room with your kit hanging up with your name on was absolutely spine tingling. Pre-match tactics and drills on the pitch, final words of encouragement from the gaffer and waiting for the bell to ring to acknowledge the teams to walk down the tunnel and to then walk out onto the pitch was just filled with stuff from dreams. If you have the urge to fulfil a boyhood fantasy, like me, there is no better place and no better charity foundation to do it with and you will leave on the day with memories to cherish forever!!"

Since forming in 2001, Football Aid have allowed over 15,300 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 578 matches all over the UK, while raising over £2.1M for charity. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Bolton Wanderers FC, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
