Marriott Bonvoy has teamed up with the Football Aid charity to give you a chance to play a full game at some of the most illustrious grounds in the UK, with one special option in Europe.

Football Aid runs regular charity games at famous grounds, with all positions up for grabs.  Ex professional players and managers are often involved to play or coach on the day.  If you’re in good enough shape, this is a fantastic opportunity.

These are the grounds you can bid your points to play at:

Chelsea – 10th May – minimum bid 50,000 points – more details here

Real Madrid – 27th May – ‘buy it now’ for 50,000 points – more details here 

Everton – 16th May – minimum bid 30,000 points – more details here 

Leicester City – 23rd May – minimum bid 30,000 points – more details here 

Packages let ONE person play, but a second person can come along and join the buffet afterwards.  You will also get multiple guest passes to watch the match.  You also usually receive a fully personalised official replica kit, get pre- and post-match briefings and a post-match awards presentation and receive a team photo and a DVD of the game.
