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.

As a player you’ll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Celtic FC 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 on to 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.
