The ultimate Christmas gift!

13 December 2017

Are you looking for an extra special Christmas present for the Notts County fan in your life this year? Why not gift them the ultimate football experience, the chance to play on the hallowed turf at Meadow Lane!

Notts County 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 Meadow Lane in 2018.

Proceeds will be donated to a charitable project nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams, meaning it won’t be just your loved ones who benefit from your generosity this Christmas!

As a player, you will have the unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of first-team stars like Jorge Grant, Matt Tootle and Jon Stead, pulling on your exclusive personalised Notts County 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 and represent the Magpies in a never-to-be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

Last year's match at Meadow Lane was supported by a host of Notts County legends, with Les Bradd, Brian Bates and Mark Stallard all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Securing your position couldn't be easier. Simply click here and choose the Notts County match. You'll then have two fixed-price options:

David Heason took part in 2017 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game.

"It was great to play alongside Mark Stallard and spend some time with Les Bradd," he said. "I love being part of Football Aid and I look forward to the next one!"
