If you're after an extra special Christmas present for the Derby County fan in your life this year, why not gift them the ultimate footballing experience, the chance to play on the hallowed turf at Pride Park Stadium!

Derby County have again teamed up with Football Aid - www.footballaid.com - to provide fans with the unique opportunity to create their own piece of club history by playing at Pride Park Stadium in 2017 and with proceeds being donated to Derby County Community Trust it won’t be just your loved ones who benefit from your generosity this Xmas!

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. The game offers Derby County fans the unrivalled opportunity to experience a matchday in the same way the likes of Richard Keogh, Tom Ince, Will Hughes and the rest of the squad do every other week.

As a player you'll get the chance to pull on your very own exclusive personalised Derby County 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 Rams in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football!

To add to that, our matches have also been supported by a host of fantastic Derby County legends in recent years, with the likes of Roger Davies, Roy McFarland, Lee Carsley, Phil Gee, Marc Edworthy, Archie Gemmill, Michael Johnson (and many more) all lending their extra special support by playing alongside or managing the fans on their big day.

Securing your position couldn’t be easier, just visit www.footballaid.com and choose the Derby County game and you’ll then have two Fixed Price options: Option 1: Buy Now - Book your place with a one off payment, or Option 2: Sponsored to Play - Pay a non-refundable £100 deposit for your place, then pay the remaining balance anytime before Fri 27th Jan 2017.

Rams fan Eoin McCafferty took part in 2016 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game:

“I just want to thank you on another great day at Derby County Football Club. It was organised exceptionally well as always and that's a credit to Derby County Football Club and all of you at Football Aid. You go out of your way all the time to make us feel like the first team at the Club. Thanks again for another great year and “here’s” to an even better 2017. Yours in Sport and Support”.

A player like Hughes could really benefit from a player of the calibre of daz in midfield, might finally turn him into that world class player we're always talking about 

I'm glad you're all finally coming round! ;-) Yep ... the lad needs a slap and a good evil stare every now and then. I'll whip him into shape. trust me lads. ;-)
