    Fir Park Stadium will be closed until further notice.

    The Prime Minister announced on Monday that all people should stay at home, except for limited reasons, in an attempt to contain the spread of Covid-19.

    The club was operating a skeleton staff in recent days but will now immediately shut down, with employees working from home where possible.

    To contact the club, please use our contact form on this website.

    We urge everyone to follow the advice issued by the UK and Scottish Governments to stay at home, except for the following limited reasons:

    • To shop for basic necessities.
    • For one form of exercise per day, either alone or with a maximum of one member of your household.
    • For medical or care needs, or to help a vulnerable person.
    • To travel to and from work but only if it is a necessity.

    Win £25,000 with the Well Lottery

    Win £25,000 with the Well Lottery

    Want to help fund the future stars at Motherwell Football Club, and also be in with a chance of winning £25,000?

    Our Well Lottery allows you to do just that, backing the next young talent rising through the ranks at the club and being in our weekly draw.

    Priced at £1 per entry, we’ve also got smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25.

    HOW TO JOIN THE WELL LOTTERY

    To join the Well Lottery, you can now choose one of the following options:

    • Sign up online here
    • Fill in the lottery leaflet provided and return via the freepost address provided to Unity.
    • Download a lottery leaflet from the Well Lottery website and return to Unity by post.

    Once you have signed up, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the lottery which will tell you your lottery numbers. You will then be entered into the draw for as long as you wish to play.

    HOW DOES THE WELL LOTTERY WORK?

    For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.

    WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

    Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.

    HOW DO I WIN?

    Every player of the Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.

    For example:

    325764 – random winning number

    326574 – your lottery number

    This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.

    HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE WON?

    Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.

    WHAT IS UNITY?

    Unity is a platform on which charities run their own fundraising lottery. It is run by an external lottery manager, Sterling Lotteries, who administer hundreds of charity lotteries for clients across the country.

    An update from the Well Society

    An update from the Well Society

    The Covid-19 crisis is having a monumental impact across the world and now at home.

    It is both a health and economic crisis at the same time which is doubling the anxiety for us all.

    In this context sport seems less important than ever before, but we also know that our club and our game are at the centre of our home community and national life. We must play our part in getting our community and country through what lies ahead and to a sustainable future on the other side.

    As things stand, we await clarity over what will happen with the 2019/20 season. Until then, it is difficult to state clearly what challenges – if any – lie ahead. As soon as things are made clearer, we will be able to update our members and the entire Motherwell support.

    As a club, we will stand by the decisions taken by our governing body and its board. We know that there can be no easy answers. We also know that now is not the time for self-interest. Now is the time to secure the common good. More than ever. Decisions will need to be taken and we will be part of making good what is decided.

    Our club is well-managed, well-supervised and well-owned. We are fortunate. But this competence and preparedness does not make us immune from the implications of what is happening. The focus of the board of the club is on supporting all of those who depend on us for their income. This matters enormously. We also want to do everything we can to engage the community as well in all that will need done in the days ahead.

    Times are uncertain, and so we are encouraged by supporters who have already contacted us looking to support the Well Society during this time.

    We would like to extend a massive thank you to all of our supporters who have recently joined or made a donation to the Well Society, as well as highlighting our gratitude to existing members who continue to support us on a regular basis. The importance of doing this cannot be overstated. Please encourage all your friends that can afford it to do the same. It will be an investment in securing the future of our club.

    We would welcome any other fans who have the means to similarly consider contributing to the Society at this time, either by pledging a monthly sum or by making a one-off donation.

    Joining or pledging to the Well Society helps to safeguard the future of our club at all times, but in particular your support now helps give comfort as we head towards what will undoubtedly be challenging times.

    To become a Well Society member, starting at just £5 per month, you can sign up here. Or, to make a one-off donation, you can click here or donate via Paypal by sending to wellsociety@motherwellfc.co.uk.

    Our understanding is that the club will put season tickets on sale in early April, which we encourage all fans who possibly can commit at that early stage to do so.

    If you have any issues or worries during this ongoing crisis, even if they are unrelated to the Well Society, Motherwell FC or football in general, and are unsure of where to turn, please contact us by clicking here and we will point you in the right direction for advice, guidance and support.

    Again, thank you for all your support. The days ahead will be full of pain, we know that. But our community has demonstrated its resilience through many challenges over the years and this one will be met by the same steel. We will emerge more together, stronger and connected.

    Look after yourselves and those around you. We’ll see you at Fir Park on the other side.

    Andrew Wilson rejoins the board

    Andrew Wilson rejoins the board

    Andrew Wilson has rejoined the board of Motherwell Football Club as a director.

    Andrew is a well-known figure in business and public life as an economist, former politician and communications strategist.

    An elected member of the first Scottish Parliament in 1999, he served as a shadow minister across various departments before joining RBS in 2003 in a number of roles, including as deputy chief economist and head of group communications.

    Wilson, who was previously on the board between 2010 and 2015 and was a key player in the creation of the ‘Well Society, is now a founding partner of strategic communications firm Charlotte Street Partners.

    Chairman Jim McMahon said: “We conducted a review into the skill set and the make up of the board and Andrew is an excellent candidate to rejoin.

    “He is experienced in both the public and private sector and is extremely well respected and connected. I am delighted we’ve managed to add someone of his standing.

    “We will continue to review the position with the Supervisory and ‘Well Society boards around further integration of directors, following some of our recent objectives being achieved.”

    Andrew will join chairman Jim McMahon, vice chair Douglas Dickie, chief executive Alan Burrows and Tom Feely on the board at Fir Park.

    “It is a privilege for me to play a part in helping my club succeed and grow,” he said of his appointment.

    “Motherwell FC’s purpose is extremely important to its community and it is a source of great joy and improvement for many people.

    “We have ambitious plans to continue its success and I rejoin at a time when I don’t think the club has been better stewarded.

    “We have a tough crisis to navigate and must play an active part in getting our community and the country through it.”

    Indefinite postponement of football continued

    Indefinite postponement of football continued

    The playing of organised football in Scotland remains suspended indefinitely.

    An update from the joint response group of the SPFL and Scottish FA on Monday has reiterated that all league fixtures will be postponed until any order from government and/or further direction from the Scottish FA can be provided.

    Matches and training sessions at all levels of our clubs are now suspended.

    The decision has been made in the interest of public health in the wake of the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, in line with the advice of the UK Medical Officer.

    The joint response group say the decision protects the general public and all involved in putting on football matches, as well as reducing the burden on the emergency services.

    Further updates on when football can resume will be given as soon as possible.

    Our club offices in the Chapman Building will remain open from 10am to 3pm every day. We would ask fans not to visit in person if it can be avoided, and to use online services, contact the club by email or call 01968 333333.

    You can view a full list of club activities affected here.

    How can you help?

    We’ve received countless offers of support from supporters and the wider community, with many of you asking if there’s anything you can do to help.

    Our club is owned by its supporters. The Well Society is a member organisation where you can pledge a monthly ongoing amount of your choice, from which the club benefits. You can also make one-off donations should you wish.

    To do so, head to our Well Society sign-up and pledge page. To find out more about how the Well Society works, you can read all about it here.

    Our plan is to have season tickets for the 2020/21 campaign on sales in early April. Fans who are able to buy early will be a huge help to the club.

    We thank everyone who has been in touch. We will provide greater clarity on what will happen next as soon as we possibly can.

    All football matches postponed indefinitely

    The Scottish FA has suspended the 2019/20 season until further notice, in light of the ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus outbreak and the risk to public health.

    As a result of the suspension, the SPFL has postponed this weekend’s fixtures. Friday night’s home match with Aberdeen will not go ahead, and our SWPL match with Hibernian on Sunday has also been cancelled. All academy games are also off.

    You can view a full list of club activities affected here.

    The Scottish FA and SPFL will continue to liaise with governments in relation to forthcoming fixtures in the coming days. More information will be communicated at the appropriate time.

    We encourage everyone to practice good hand washing hygiene in accordance with government advice.

    • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds.
    • always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
    • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
    • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.

    • try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
    • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

    If you are showing symptoms, follow the advice to self-isolate for seven days. The NHS lists symptoms as a high temperature or a new, continuous cough. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital, and do not call NHS 111 to inform them you are self-isolating,

    Use the NHS 111 online service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse or your symptoms do not get better after seven days. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
