'If It's Football, It's Vital'

"Bid to Play at Fratton Park!"

It's that time of year again: the weather is wetter, money is minimal and New Year's resolutions are already redundant. But fear not: Football Aid are here to brighten up those January blues with the return of the spectacular annual event, the unique and fantastic Football Aid January Auction!

Together with the support of Portsmouth FC, Football Aid are looking to raise even more money for a variety of charitable causes, as the launch of the fiercely competitive Football Aid auction gets underway. Imagine the pride in seeing your shirt hanging up in the changing room, the thrill of running through the tunnel and the adrenaline of playing on the pitch that your heroes have graced before you...

A host of club legends will also support Football Aid in the first event at Fratton Park, either managing or playing alongside Pompey fans as they grace the hallowed turf.

By visiting www.footballaid.com, you have the chance to buy your favourite position outright with Football Aid's "Buy Now" option, or grab yourself a January bargain in our bidding extravaganza, with positions at Fratton Park starting from only 170! Bidding positions will close the week commencing Monday 23rd March.

So if you're a dynamic defender like Johnson, or great in goal like James, there are positions to suit every player wishing to take part in this first ever event at Fratton Park!

All funds raised from the events are distributed through Football Aid's parent charity Field of Dreams and split between diabetes research programmes, and charities nominated by participating clubs. Football Aid has so far awarded over 1.3M to charitable causes since the company was set up in 2000, and has enabled nearly 10,000 football fans to pull on their favourite club's colours and grace the hallowed turf of the club they support. Please visit www.footballaid.com or alternatively contact the sales team at info@footballaid.com to find out how you can Live the Dream.

Unfortunately I don't have a spare 170.... however I hope this will be a great event for those that do take part. Good stuff.
PFCGino
Good cause. Worth doing.
NinjaTim
Good cause indeed but 170 per place. Have they not seen how many empty seats there have been around the grounds in the last few months.

Shame we didn't know about it before now because up to January you can raise the money through sponsorship but now it's on a bid basis. I'm sure I'd have been able to raise 200 for diabetes charity and I'd have stumped up a few quid myself.
NinjaTim
you never know you might end up in the frist team at this rate!!!

I might go for this, could earn myself a contract. Event at 38 still better than the likes of Mullins, Faye, Campbell etc.
bluedr
Im very tempted, left winger available for 250quid buy now! And im only 18! Pompey future?! Haha!
PompeyFCUK
are they that desperate for new players cheaply?? lol would be good if i had the money.... :(
MFFP
I thought about right wing but, at 48, do I want to be marked by the "guest legend" who is playing left back for the "away" team? Mind you, I've still got a good turn of pace for an old git.
NinjaTim
Do we actually have anyone who could play? Maybe we could all put somethingin the pot from VP?
Gandor1
MEE! Haha, im prob gna actualy pay to do it! Im well up for it! You can apprently pay, then get sponsored to raise the money after, and they send you a sponsor pack after you pay for it or summin!
PompeyFCUK
You could only get sponsored before January now it's an auction or buy it now. I'm going to watch the bidding for now and see if I can do it.
NinjaTim
Some of us have already played at Fraton Park :)))
Chix
Chix, Tell us more! You rose like a souffle at the far post to head the winner?
NinjaTim
Nah Tim but did score (although we lost)! - Schools boys Cup Final in 1976 (I think) got the medal in the loft somewhere.. The Dell, Villa Park and Carrow Road as well.. All before the wine women and song stage of my life though ! I was slim and athletic and looked like a greek god .. Well that's my recollection anyway !
