How would you like to Live Your Dream of running out at St Andrews alongside a Blues Legend before taking part in a 90-minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now’s your chance as Birmingham City FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid – – to give fans the opportunity to play at St Andrews in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Blues fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Paul Robinson, Chris Burke, Darren Randolph 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 Blues in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at St Andrews have also been supported by a host of fantastic Blues legends in recent years, with the likes of Ian Atkins, Ian Clarkson, Martin O’Connor, Jeff Kenna, Dean Holtham, Nicky Eaden, Kevin Francis, Joe Gallagher, Noel Blake, Graham Hyde, Jerry Gill, Kevan Broadhurst (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 Birmingham games 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.

Birmingham City fan Tony Sewell played in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience:

“Thanks for a great day again at St. Andrews, Scoring for Birmingham City was like a dream come true! Charity really begins at home. Roll on August!”
