The 'Fans of the Future' campaign aims to encourage the next generation of supporters to watch live football at their local League club by providing a range of innovative ticketing initiatives for young supporters. Swindon Town FC have for the last three seasons offered a 'Kids Go Free' scheme for fans under the age of seven, as well as discounted tickets for school groups and local football teams.
Helen James-Ellett, Sales & Marketing Manager from Brunel FM, commented:
'We at 107.7 Brunel FM are delighted to be playing a key role in this fantastic initiative involving the youngsters in our community. We will continue to support the 'Fans of the Future' campaign to help encourage young supporters to become more involved with S.T.F.C.'
Football League Chairman Lord Mawhinney said: 'Supporters are the lifeblood of professional football. By making League matches more accessible to young supporters through 'Fans of the Future' Football League clubs are taking a courageous lead.
'They are helping themselves by helping young people to enjoy football locally. I congratulate them on being far-sighted enough to commit themselves to an initiative that will deliver real results for generations to come.
'I am certain that young supporters and their parents will react positively to this initiative and I encourage them to take advantage of it. Having the opportunity to see their local side in action will begin a lifelong football passion for many.'
