Sheffield Wednesday have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to grace the hallowed turf and play on their Field of Dreams at Hillsborough in 2013, while at the same time raising funds for charity.
Our magical event allows Owls’ supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ in an authentic match day experience. 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 ultimately to step out on the hallowed turf and represent their club in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.
The matches have also been supported by a host of Owls’ legends, with the likes of new Football Aid Ambassador Lee Bullen, Lawrie Madden, Brian Laws, John Pearson, John Sheridanand many more all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at Hillsborough.
