The past year has been an exceptionally challenging one for all of us.
On top of worries about our health and the wellbeing of our loved ones, many have also had to contend with worries about their jobs and, in many cases, facing unemployment.
Beyond the challenges of Covid-19, our area also faces economic issues in normal times. Our unemployment rate is higher than the Scottish and British average, and many other families and individuals are surviving on low incomes.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, our town was going through another crisis with high unemployment. Then, the club, the fans and local businesses rallied around to help people receive free tickets for matches. We displayed our community spirit and care for each other, ensuring people remained part of our family and stayed in contact with people, while they tried to get back on their feet.
Now, we once again want to give something back to those in our area who want to get to the football, and help them share in the community spirit and friendship that being in our stadium brings. We want everyone to feel able to be part of our club, and remove the financial barrier to entry where possible.
We are launching our Well In scheme, providing free season tickets to the unemployed and low-income families in our area. It is in our DNA to improve people’s lives where we possibly can. Giving people the lifeline of a network and an escape every fortnight at Fir Park could make the world of difference.
We’re asking supporters who feel financially able to donate towards the scheme this year. All donations of any value are welcome, with 100% of the money going towards the purchase of season tickets.
In return, the club will match fund all donations to ensure as many season tickets as possible are made available to our community.
To donate, go to donate.motherwellfc.co.uk and give what you can, or call us on 01698 333333.
Information on how to benefit from this scheme will be announced shortly.
