    Free season tickets for unemployed and low-income families

    Free season tickets for unemployed and low-income families

    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.

    2021/22 season ticket purchases

    Remember, if you had a season ticket for the 2020/21 season, we will give you a free season ticket for 2021/22.

    You don’t need to do anything to claim your ticket. We will automatically activate your account for 2021/22.

    If you would like a refund on your 2020/21 season ticket, we’re making it easy for you to do so.

    Just email us at tickets.motherwellfc.co.uk with your name and a contact telephone number, and we’ll get back in touch. Alternatively, call us on 01698 333333.

    Didn’t have a season ticket last year and want to buy?

    It’s easy to do this. Head to tickets.motherwellfc.co.uk and then press ‘season tickets’ from the top menu.

    You’ll then be given the option to choose where in the stadium you would like to sit. From there, you can create yourself an account and then buy your season ticket for the 2021/22 campaign.

    Alternatively, call us on 01698 333333 or email tickets@motherwellfc.co.uk.

    Free season tickets for 2020/21 holders

    At the start of the 2020/21 season, we pledged to season ticket holders that they would see – in person – 19 Premiership matches at Fir Park in return for their purchase.

    At that time, we were confident that supporters would be back home at some stage in the campaign, even as early as the autumn.

    Now, as we know, that never happened, and we have played every match behind closed doors.

    Despite that, our commitment remains unchanged. If you bought a season ticket for 2020/21, we will automatically give you a season ticket for 2021/22 for free.

    You do not need to spend any more money. We will honour our pledge and send you a new season card soon.

    We will forever be grateful for your decision to spend money last year when there was no certainty over what would happen next. We are incredibly appreciative, considering many of you will have been going through difficult times, worrying about your health, your family and perhaps even your job. We want to repay your faith by welcoming you back to Fir Park at no extra cost.

    We are also mindful that some of you may need the money back from your season ticket instead, as an alternative to a free season ticket. We are offering refunds on season tickets until the end of May. Just email us at tickets@motherwellfc.co.uk, or call 01698 333333, and we’ll sort it for you right away.

    A lot of fans have also approached us about making further donations to the club. In recognition of that, we are asking you to consider donating to our Community Trust and help us continue the excellent work they’ve done over the last year.

    In addition, we are launching our Well In scheme, inviting you to make a donation towards season tickets for unemployed persons and low-income families in our area. We are thankful to everyone who would consider such a gesture, and it is possible to do so by visiting donate.motherwellfc.co.uk.

    If you didn’t buy a season ticket in 2020/21 but want to now, we’d be delighted to welcome you back for the new campaign. Season tickets are now on sale – just go to tickets.motherwellfc.co.uk to buy. We’ve frozen our prices from last year, and we’re still offering the great incentive of up to two free season tickets for kids.

    At the time of writing, we know that restrictions on large outdoor gatherings will begin to ease on Monday 17 May.

    We are encouraged by the Scottish Government’s decision to allow 25% of Hampden Park to be open for the UEFA Euro 2020 matches in June. We hope to be able to update you all soon on plans for opening the gates here in time for the Premier Sports Cup group stages in July and the start of the Premiership campaign soon after.

    Until then, thank you. Stay safe and look after each other. Soon, we’ll be back home cheering on our team. Hold on to those thoughts of returning to your seat, being reunited with family and friends and seeing your team again. It’s coming.

    Rangers beat ‘Well in SWPL1

    Motherwell fell to a 6-0 defeat against title-chasing Rangers in SWPL1 on Sunday.

    It took 20 minutes for the visitors to get ahead. Arnott’s cross from the left met the forward run of defender Swaby, who capitalised on Chelsie Watson’s missed header to steal in at the back post and finish.

    Rangers continued to build attacks by stretching Motherwell across the full width of the park and they got their second on the 25-minute mark.

    Docherty’s clipped cross from the left wasn’t cleared and it fell to Cornet, who smashed the ball into the net from 10 yards.

    Five minutes later, it was three. Another ball from the left found the arriving Ness on the left of the box, taking the ball first time and lashing a shot into the top-left corner of the goal.

    A corner from the right landed on top of a cluster of bodies at the back post, with the ball hitting the post and falling kindly to Reilly at point-blank range.

    Swinging at the ball, her goalbound effort hit the helpless goalkeeper Cunningham on its way in.

    Shortly after, it was five. Ness’ reverse ball for Arnot matched the run into the box on the left, with the Scotland international finding the bottom-right corner of the net from a tight angle.

    The women of steel continued to press and harass their full-time opponents but would fall to a sixth with 25 minutes to go.
