Kids go free throughout half term
January 1, 2000
Stuck for ideas for what to do with the kids this half term week? Then why not bring them along to the Memorial Stadium for free!
Rovers have two home games during half term, and they have decided to make both matches free for under 16s*.
During ‘Kids Week’ the Pirates take on Port Vale on Tuesday, October 25th and Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday, October 29th.
The Dagenham match also marks the annual One Game, One Community Festival, which means there will be a range of activities and entertainment at the Mem for the whole family to enjoy.
Rovers are also encouraging children from local schools to design banners celebrating all aspects of the One Game, One Community message.
All schools who take part will be invited to the game to parade their banner at half time, and the winning school will receive a money cannot buy prize from Bristol Rovers.
Support services manager Steve Burns said: “”As a family club we recognise the importance of encouraging future generations of supporters, and see this as a perfect opportunity for local children to enjoy a couple of games of football for free.
“We have a great relationship with the local schools in our area, and we want to be able to extend this as far as possible.”
The offer is available in all areas of the ground, apart from the two main stands, and tickets can be purchased on the day. Children must be accompanied by a full paying adult.
We are trying to establish a database of Fans of the Future, and will be collecting data, including emails and birthdays, at the point of sale.
Tickets will be available from Monday from either of the club’s two retail outlets, or by calling 0117 9096648 (option 1) during office hours.
*One child free with every full paying adult.
