Play at Carrow Road!

How would you like to Live Your Dream of running out at Carrow Road alongside a Norwich Legend before taking part in a 90 minute match on the hallowed turf?

Well now's your chance as Norwich City FC have once again joined forces with Football Aid to give fans the opportunity to play at Carrow Road on Monday 19th May 2014, 10am kick off, and raise valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid offers Norwich City fans the unique opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of John Ruddy, Bradley Johnson and Gary Hooper 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 Canaries in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

The matches at Carrow Road have also been supported by a host of fantastic Canaries legends in recent years, with the likes of Darren Huckerby, Dean Ashton, Iwan Roberts, Darren Eadie, and Adrian Forbes lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Positions are now open for bidding and securing a position couldn't be easier, just visit and choose the Norwich City game 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.

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.

Norwich fan Michael Lee played in 2013 and told Football Aid about his experience:

"Quite possibly one of the best I've done. Made to feel really welcome by all at Norwich - the pitch was perfect, clearly they were happy to have Football Aid at Carrow Road and that was obvious to see. To have three ex-pros playing - one of which was Darren Huckerby - was fantastic. Well done Football Aid and well done Norwich City Football Club!"

So if you're keen to secure a place on your Field of Dreams this season, why not visit and sign up today! Alternatively, if you'd like any additional information, you can call Football Aid 0131 220 5999, email:, post on their Facebook page or send a tweet to @FootballAid.

Since forming in 2001 Football Aid have allowed over 14,000 football fans the chance to Live the Dream in 535 charity matches all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from this year's events will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Norwich City FC, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams.
