Full description of the day’s activities: 

Taking place at the Premier League home of newly-promoted Burnley FC, players will arrive at 5pm via the players' entrance for pre-game refreshments and then head to the first team dressing rooms to change into their personalised Burnley FC kit.

They will then enter the pitch for a warm-up lead by the team Managers and return to the dressing rooms for a motivating team talk.

Raring to go, the two teams will then enter the pitch via the players' tunnel at 6pm, for a full 90 minute game officiated by FA-qualified referees and assistant referees.

After two exciting 45 minutes halves, all players will take part in post-match celebrations including 'Man of the Match' and team photographs - which will be available to purchase alongside video footage of the game.

At 8pm, food and refreshments will be supplied by Burnley FC catering department and players will be free to leave, with match-worn shirt in hand and memories of a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

This experience is open to anyone over the age of 18, male or female, with any level of football experience/ability but players should be sufficiently fit enough to play 90 minutes.

Please note, you will be required to complete a medical form and disclaimer prior to playing on the pitch, failure to do so will result in your position becoming void.

If you have any medical concerns, please speak to us BEFORE bidding on the item.
