BT have once again shown magnificent support and joined forces with Football Aid, allowing football fans the opportunity to represent their country and play on the hallowed turf at the magnificent Hampden Park National Stadium in 2013.
Our magical events allow Scotland supporters to ‘Live the Dream’ in an authentic match day experience. Players will gain exclusive access to the pitch and tunnel areas, pull on their own personalised shirt in the official changing rooms, walk down the tunnel to the sound of a cheering crowd and ultimately step out on to the hallowed turf and represent their nation in a never to be forgotten 90 minutes of football.
The matches have also been supported by a host of Scottish legends, with the likes of Danny McGrain, John Collins, Paul Lambert, Scott Booth, Gary McCallister, Pat Nevin, and many more all lending their valuable support in recent years, by playing alongside or managing the supporters in the hugely enjoyable matches at Hampden Park.

Football Aid celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2010 and have allowed over 13,090 football fans the chance to “Live the Dream” in more than 501 matches. They are a groundbreaking organisation which generates funds annually by hosting charity football matches at iconic stadiums all over the UK. The unique concept was the brainchild of businessman and Football Aid Chairman Craig Paterson and funds raised from the event will benefit the work of a charitable project nominated by the club, as well as projects nominated by Football Aid’s parent charity Field of Dreams.
The Kiltwalk's plans for 2013 were announced on Sunday 16th Sept and there was no shortage of exciting news.

The Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal has today launched its newly designed logo.
The Steering Group were aware of frequent requests from supporters for Sunshine Appeal merchandise. One problem with designing items that could be sold for funds was that the existing logo was difficult and expensive to reproduce. This was prohibitive to creating branded merchandise.
The Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal is the longest running charity funded by Scotland fans, and with it having such a strong bond with its supporters, it was felt that to completely re-design the existing logo would be wrong. Therefore a carefully planned logo, based on the old design, which kept the basic concepts that the Sunshine Appeal stands for, was the best option.
With this, we can now progress and produce a range of merchandise that we hope our supporters will appreciate and wish to purchase, to continue the work of the Sunshine Appeal.
Keep an eye on our website for the launch of new merchandise in the lead up to our World Cup campaign at www.tasunshineappeal.co.uk
