How would you like to ‘Live The Dream’ at Meadow Lane and take part in a truly memorable 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now’s your chance as Notts County have teamed up with Football Aid – – to provide fans with the unique opportunity to Bid to Play at Meadow Lane while raising valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 16 years now and are regarded as the original and best in delivering the ultimate pitch day experience. The game offers fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Jorge Grant, Matt Tootle, Jon Stead and the rest of the squad do every other week.

As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your exclusive personalised Notts County FC 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 official playing kit and represent The Magpies in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

Last year’s match at Meadow Lane was supported by a host of Notts County legends, with Les Bradd, Brian Bates and Mark Stallard all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Positions are available for Bidding from just £115 and securing a position couldn’t be easier! Just visit and choose the Notts County game, you’ll then have two options: Opt 1: Bid to Play – Enter your Maximum Bid and if you’re the highest bidder when the position closes you’ll win a place on your Field of Dreams, or Opt 2: Buy Now – Close the auction early and secure your place with a one off payment. Positions close at regular intervals throughout the bidding period, the first of the positions closed on Tuesday 13th February and final positions closing Wednesday 14th March.

David Heason took part in 2017 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game:

“Firstly thanks for organising yesterday. It was a fantastic experience and great to play alongside Mark Stallard and spend some time with Les Bradd. Probably my favourite Football Aid event so far. Thanks to the University of Nottingham Sport team too, without their expert support I suspect I’d be feeling a lot worse today! Thanks again for yesterday, I love being part of Football Aid and I look forward to seeing you at the next one I can get to!”

So if you’re keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit and sign up today! 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 17,800 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 674 matches all over the UK, while raising over £2.3M for charity. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Founder Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year’s event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
