As we begin to get a bit more clarity about how we might finally exit from lockdown, we ask you to consider becoming a season ticket holder for 2021/22.
This has been a very difficult year for all of us. I hope that you and your family are safe and well. As a club and support, we should be proud of the role we have played in handling the pandemic.
We have stood together as a community, making sure we give each other comfort and hope. As a club, in conjunction with our Community Trust, we are always looking for ways to help, including our delivery of food parcels to those in need, collections for various food banks around Lanarkshire and ensuring the town’s Christmas lights were put up across the festive period.
Our club is a family. A family which extends to all of those we come into contact with, whether they follow our team or not. We have demonstrated this in the most trying of times and we will continue to do so.
We can now turn to what lies in front of us, which we think could include the return of supporters to Fir Park in time for the start of the new season.
When we asked you to buy season tickets for the 2020/21 campaign, that involved a huge leap of faith. We could offer no assurances on when you would be able to see the team in person, nor even if you would be at Fir Park at all over the year.
As we all know, our stadium sat empty, without your presence for all 22 of the matches we played. And yet you committed to us in your thousands, buying tickets and playing a major part in ensuring we could continue to operate on and off the pitch.
We also made a pledge at that time, which was that you would be able to see 19 league games in person, no matter the circumstances. We will honour that commitment and ensure that everyone who bought a season ticket for 2020/21 will get another one for 2021/22 at no extra cost. The philosophy of our club is simple to state – do the right thing by our supporters. And we will.
We will also offer the option to claim your money back in full. If anyone needs that refund then please do ask for it.
In addition, we are providing two other alternatives. Firstly, if you are in a position to do so, we are giving you the opportunity to donate money to our Community Trust to help continue the exceptional work we have done both prior to and during the pandemic.
We are also launching a new initiative called Well In, where supporters can make a contribution towards free season tickets for those who are unemployed in our area, as well as low-income families.
We want to make our club as inclusive as possible and try to remove the financial barrier for those who struggle the most to be part of our club and community.
We hope you can support us in this and, to help further, the club will match all funds raised to ensure as many free season tickets as possible are given out. So if donations to Well In reach £40,000, the club will distribute £80,000 worth of season tickets.
We will soon return to Fir Park and your continued support is vital. Not only for the team on the pitch when you are in the stands, but also to allow us to continue our work as a club and a force for good for our local community.
Please support us by taking up the offer of a free season ticket, or buy a season ticket if you were unable to join us last time. Better still, if there are friends or family members who you can encourage to come along with you, show them the way. We have frozen the prices from last year to encourage as many as possible to join. And, if you are able, please consider making a donation to the Community Trust or to Well In to help others become part of our family.
We are about so much more than the 90 minutes. We are a community. As we return to some form of normality, we cherish the chance to share great moments with those closest to us.
We wish you, your family and your friends continued good health. These have been remarkable times. We have shown unity, strength and patience to get to this point. I want nothing more than for us to be back together at Fir Park. See you there.
How do I get my free season ticket?
If you bought a season ticket in 2020/21, 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.
We will send out new season ticket cards ahead of the start of the 2021/22 season, so look out for yours in the post. You’ll need this card to gain entry to the stadium. If you don’t receive yours before the first game of the season, please call us on 01698 333333.
How can I buy a season ticket if I didn’t have one in 2020/21?
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. We’ve frozen our prices from the 2020/21 season.
Alternatively, call us on 01698 333333 or email email@example.com.
How do I claim a refund?
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.
How can I donate?
Many fans have approached us about making a donation to our Community Trust, to support them in their ongoing efforts to support our local people through the pandemic, and beyond.
Furthermore, we have also launched our Well In scheme, inviting you to make a donation towards season tickets for unemployed persons and low-income families in our area.
If you are in a position to make a donation, we would be delighted and grateful.
To make your donation, just head to donate.motherwellfc.co.uk and follow the easy steps. Alternatively, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01698 333333, and we’ll help.
