Football Aid - 21st January 2009 Bid to Play at Loftus Road!

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 Queens Park Rangers, 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 including Danny Maddix, Clive Wilson and Gary Waddock have all supported Football Aid in previous years, either managing or playing alongside Super Hoops fans as they graced the hallowed turf.

The 2009 Football Aid Auction at www.footballaid.com is already shaping up to be extremely exciting, with the new Maximum Bid and Buy Now options already proving very popular with bidders! Bidding positions will continue to close at regular intervals throughout the bidding period with the first position closing on the 3rd February and the last available positions closing on the 4th March.

So with bidding starting from only £170, there really is no better time to grab yourself the ultimate January bargain! So if you are fantastic up-front like Blackstock, or a midfield magician like Rowlands, there are positions to suit every player wishing to take part in this event at Loftus Road!

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. Football Aid

QPR joined the Football Aid family in 2001 and have hosted successful games at Loftus Road ever since with Club Legends like Clive Wilson, Danny Maddix, Wayne Fereday and club coach Dave Robinson showing their support. Former Chairman Gianni Paladini even shocked fans by attending the Football Aid game at Loftus Road in 2006, cheering from the sidelines alongside the then management team of Gary Waddock and Alan McDonald. While both teams did themselves proud in the match, amazingly there were no new signings announced for the R's the next day....
