Dundalk FC offering free season tickets for primary school children

DundalkCrest2010Dundalk FC has announced that they will be offering free season tickets to primary school children, aged 12 and under, for the 2014 campaign.

As part of the process the club will be launching a new Junior Supporters’ Club in the coming weeks. This new initiative will be free to join with all members entitled to a free season ticket for the upcoming season as well as further benefits.

Chairman Ciaran Bond stated: “This has been a long-standing ambition of the board since we completed the takeover last year. With this unique plan we wish to make Friday nights at Oriel Park a more family friendly experience and to ease the burden on parents who wish to bring their kids to matches.”

General Manager Paul Johnston added: “We have recently added our former captain Liam Burns to our ranks as Schools Co-Ordinator and he will be involved in the rolling out of this project in the coming weeks. We have been visiting a number of schools in recent weeks and the interest in the club is massive in the community.

“This initiative will hopefully have the short-term benefit of making attendance at live football matches at Oriel Park much more affordable for families plus have the long-term benefit of introducing kids to supporting their local football club and set them on their way to becoming life-long fans.”

More information will be released soon on this initiative. Junior Supporters’ Club members will also be able to vote for their own Player of the Year and have the opportunities for to get involved in the club as ball-boys and ball-girls.

Information on other season ticket prices will be announced shortly.
