Sir Bobby Robson, Patron, adds "Football Aid is a fantastic opportunity for supporters to play where their heroes play and this year, Football Aid is doing better than ever — with more positions taken up, and very likely, much stronger competition for the bidding. Wherever Football is played, there are scores of supporters who live, breathe and sleep the day to day ups and downs of their Club. It is these people that can live their dream, playing with former players in the strip of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club on the pitch at White Hart Lane and make a difference to so many others by the fact that what they do, playing in a game of the pitch of their Club, they raise money for people in need. And wherever Football is played, there are many people in need of help and support."
