Chelsea fan Stuart Lewis took part in 2019 and told Football Aid about his experience after the game:

“I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all at Football Aid for what was genuinely (engagement, marriage and birth of children aside) the best experience of my life on Friday night. Playing 90mins under the flood lights with Pat (Nevin) and Lee (McCulloch) at Stamford Bridge is incredible, speaking to Eden Hazard on the way in, scoring a pen and getting MotM trophy from Pat (Nevin) with my son Jet there as a mascot was truly epic! Greatly appreciate the work of Football Aid and the experience it gives to its customers for the benefit of the charity”.
