Last year we helped publicise a great cause for charity, Football Aid, which gives fans the chance to play a game at the Madejski Stadium all in the name of a good cause. Once again we're happy to support the cause with details of this year's event below.
Reading FC Community Trust have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to grace the hallowed turf and play on their Field of Dreams at the Madejski in 2013, while at the same time raising funds for charity.
Our magical event allows Reading supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ in an authentic match day experience. 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 ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent their club in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.
The matches have also been supported by a host of Royal legends, with the likes of Michael Gilkes, Mick Gooding, Lawrie Sanchez and many more all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at the Madejski.

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 13,090 football fans the chance to "Live the Dream" in more than 501 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
