How would you like to Live Your Dream of running out at St. James’ Park alongside a Newcastle Legend before taking part in a 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?
Well now's your chance as Newcastle United FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid - www.footballaid.com - to give fans the opportunity to play at St. James’ Park on Friday 16th May, 3:15pm & 6:30pm kick off in 2014 and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.
Football Aid offers Newcastle United fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Hatem Ben Arfa, Fabricio Coloccini, Papiss Cisse 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 Magpies in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!
To add to that, the matches at St. James’ Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Magpie legends in recent years, with the likes of Football Aid Ambassador Peter Beardsley, Bobby Moncur, John Carver, Kenny Wharton, Mick Martin, John Anderson (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Newcastle United fan Graeme Murray played in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience:
“I truly had an amazing day, I was so chuffed when I scored my first goal and if I'm honest that would have been enough for me and that's why I gave the penalty to my brother in law so he could have his moment like I had mine. I never thought for one minute I would go on to score 5 and scoring the crucial goals of the equaliser the goal to put us in front and then the last to put the game to bed making it 7-5, then to receive man of the match and get a match ball was just truly magical and a dream come true. I paid a lot of money for the game but it truly lived up to my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone that wants to live the dream.”
