The English football club Macclesfield Town have confirmed they hope to raise $40,000 by offering one person the chance to play for the club.
The successful applicant will feature for 10 minutes of a Conference Premier or Cup fixture.
The club will only consider fit males between the ages of 18 and 35, but have not said how they will choose a winner.
Macclesfield are in a perilous financial position and need 200 thousand dollars by the end of August to survive.
Macclesfield Town were relegated from League Two in 2012, ending their 15-year stay in the Football League, and finished 11th in the Conference last season, although they earned significant funds from a run to the fourth round of the FA Cup - their best-ever performance in the competition.
