Football Aid 2020 – Your chance to play at Tynecastle!

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

Well now’s your chance as Big Hearts and Heart of Midlothian FC have once again teamed up with Football Aid – – to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history by playing at Tynecastle, while raising valuable funds for the Big Hearts Community Trust as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams. 

Football Aid have been organising charity games for over 18 years now and are regarded as the original and best in delivering the ultimate pitch day experience. 

As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your exclusive personalised Heart of Midlothian 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 Jambos in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, the matches at Tynecastle have also been supported by a host of fantastic Heart of Midlothian legends in previous years, with the likes of Alan McLaren, Alan Lawrence, Jimmy Sandison, Steven Boyack (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day. 

Positions are now available online and securing your place couldn’t be easier! Just visit and book your place in the Hearts match with a one off payment*.

Hearts fan Mark Kirk took part in a previous year and told Football Aid about his experience after the match:

“I just wanted to say thanks for all you hard work and understanding in helping me out for the match at Tynecastle yesterday. I had an amazing day, what an experience! I’m definitely feeling the worse for wear today but am already trying to plot if I can do it again next year!”.

Additionally, Football Aid will host a second match on the same day with fans competing in a Scotland vs Rest of the World international fixture. Proceeds from this match will also benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by Big Hearts.
