'If It's Football, It's Vital'

8,000 Expected For Rotherham Match

Swindon Town Deputy Chairman Mark Devlin has revealed the club are expecting over 8,000 supporters for tommorrow's match against Rotherham.

Season Ticket holders are allowed to bring up to 4 additional guests for only 5.00 each. Many stayaway fans are coming back to the County Ground as Mark Devlin explains.

'I have heard of all sorts of reasons why we have lost fans in recent years - ticket prices, Steve McMahon, Andy King - but, hopefully, we can now win back some of those lapsed supporters, because that is vital to the long term future of the club.'

In the past the club has been very strict over its ticketing policy and has refused to budge when Supporters Groups have suggested ticket incentives in the past. Sir Seton Wills slammed Trust STFC when they suggested that the club run ticket incentive's to entice more fans through the turnstiles. It appears the Trust was right and now the club will look to run more incentives in the future. In regards to the current incentive for season ticket holders Mark Devlin said, 'It has gone phenomenally well - the response has been fantastic.

'This is something we have done to try and build up our fan base, but also as a thank you to season ticket holders for their support.

'They can bring friends and relatives along, and, hopefully, we will expand our database.

'Hopefully, people will come along, enjoy the match and see some of the good football the team have been producing of late.'

Swindon take on Rotherham United tommorrow at the County Ground at 3pm.
