AFC Fylde is delighted to be a part of The National Lottery Football Weekends. If you are a National Lottery player, you will be able to come and watch our home match against Farsley Celtic on 2/04/2022 with a friend and get one of the tickets for free.
As fans, you know full well how damaging the pandemic has been to clubs like ours. With a halt in the football calendar and no gate revenue, there were serious fears about the future of many clubs.
Thankfully, National Lottery players stepped in to protect many local football clubs, providing £12.5million of support to clubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
As thanks for the essential support, 231 clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are now taking part in The National Lottery Football Weekends. Each club will, for one home fixture in March or April, run a special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer for National Lottery players to take someone – potentially for the very first time – to a game.
Manager Jim Bentley said: “Anyone that plays the National Lottery plays a vital role in supporting our national game, the National League itself and both at non-league and grassroots level.
“Here at AFC Fylde, we are a club that is closely connected with the local community, and with the funding we receive from the National Lottery, we are able to continue delivering projects to supporters that make a real difference to them and the wider community.”
We look forward to welcoming as many fans as possible to our game with Farsley Celtic on the 2nd of April. Why not come and see your first match here at Mill Farm and see how amazing local football is?
More details on how to claim your free ticket will be provided closer to the date of the game, but we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible here at Mill Farm cheering the boys on to three points.
