Well now’s your chance as Celtic FC have teamed up with Football Aid – – to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history by playing at Celtic Park in 2017, while raising valuable funds for charity at the same time.

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 15 years now and are regarded as the original and best in delivering the ultimate pitch day experience. The games offer Celtic fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Scott Brown, Scott Sinclair, Leigh Griffiths and co do every other week, and as a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Celtic 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 Celtic in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at Celtic Park have also been supported by a host of fantastic Celtic legends in recent years, with the likes of John Kennedy, Neil Lennon, Joe Miller, Bobby Petta, Tom Boyd and Football Aid Vice Patron Danny McGrain all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

 Securing your position couldn’t be easier, just visit and choose the Celtic games and you’ll then have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now – Book your place with a one off payment, or Option 2: Sponsored to Play – Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before Fri 27th Jan 2017.

Celtic fan Neil Palmer took part in 2016 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game:

“I would just like to say myself and my family had a great time in paradise “living the dream”.
