Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

FREE SEASON TICKETS FOR UNDER-16S

Monday 15th February 2021

DUMBARTON Football Club are delighted to announce a new initiative aimed at encouraging younger Sons fans and prospective Sons fans to attend home league games for FREE when the next season kicks off.

The club is offering FREE season tickets for anyone under 16, whenever the next season gets underway.

Club secretary and finance director, Stephen Lynch, said "While we have been working incredibly hard to ensure the club's financial position is protected during these difficult times, we have also been carrying out strategic reviews in all aspects of the club.

"One area of concern is the downward trend in home support and season ticket holders. Our recent initiative to get feedback from fans and prospective fans to understand what they believe are the key inhibitors, is under way, and we look forward to reviewing this important input.

"Even without the feedback, we have recognised the importance of affordability, particularly in the under-16 category.

"A few years ago we introduced free season tickets for under-12s and I am delighted to announce the board has agreed to extend that to under-16s.

"We are looking to continue to build on our community initiatives and see this as another key step, encouraging local young fans to come and enjoy an afternoon out supporting their local team."

Times of course remain uncertain due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the current suspension of football below the SPFL Championship being among the effects. However, further details will be made available once we get greater certainty on next season.

If you're interested, please contact us at the club by emailing office@dumbartonfc.co.uk and we will ensure we contact you once details are available.

Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to get involved in supporting your local club at the start of a new chapter after Covid-19, and closes in on its 150th anniversary.
