    Take part in the Scottish Football Supporters Survey

    Motherwell fans are being asked to take part in this year’s Scottish Football Supporters Survey.

    Operated by Supporters Direct Scotland, officially recognised as the lead supporters’ group in Scotland by the SPFL and Scottish FA, they have established a formal means to engage with the game’s key decision makers and represent fans’ views overall.

    You can participate in the survey by clicking here

    Last year’s survey results were presented to the Professional Game Board and at the Scottish FA Congress in December 2017. Almost 14,000 supporters participated in 2017, with overall outcomes including:

    • The consideration of value for money, which was regard as “the biggest threat to the future of the game in the next five years”.
    • Ticket pricing, kick off times and the relationship fans have with their clubs were considered to be the three most important factors in decision to attend a game.

    You can read more about the results of the 2017 survey, and the resulting “asks” by visiting scottishsupporters.net.

    The Scottish Football Supporters Survey will run annually over the next three years to allow them to continue to measure results and improvements, covering the topics of value for money, fan experience and supporter engagement.

    This year’s findings will be reviewed by Supporters’ Direct Scotland, the SPFL, the Scottish FA and also an insight group consisting of key media and communications staff from various SPFL clubs.

    The survey will run for two weeks closing on Sunday 16 September.

    Motherwell to provide free sanitary products at Fir Park

    Motherwell to provide free sanitary products at Fir Park

    Motherwell Football Club has become the latest Scottish Premiership club to provide free sanitary products in its stadium, thanks to its sponsors Paycare.

    The Steelmen’s official shorts partner and health and wellbeing partner has sponsored the club’s trial of free sanitary products. They will be available within all 14 of the female toilets in the concourse area at Fir Park.

    The campaign will run throughout the season, with the health cash plan organisation contributing towards the initial cost.

    Many countries are calling for more support for women from low-income backgrounds who cannot afford basic menstrual products and are victim to ‘period poverty’.

    This is said to affect one in 10 women aged 14 to 21 in Britain, and nearly one in five in Scotland.

    “As a fan-owned club, we’re immensely proud of our history and our commitment to inclusivity for our fans, visitors and staff alike,” Suzanne Reid, head of commercial and marketing, explained.

    “Period poverty is a very real issue impacting many women from lower income families, and it can subsequently have a huge impact on the quality of their day-to-day lives.

    “We’re pleased to be launching our trial to freely supply our female visitors with free sanitary products, kindly part-funded by Paycare, our official health and wellbeing partner.

    “Feedback so far has been great, and we very much hope to implement it as a permanent benefit within Motherwell Football Club.”

    The campaign follows similar initiatives launched by Celtic FC, which introduced free sanitary products within its stadium earlier this year, as well as the Scottish Parliament building, which provides free products for all staff and visitors.

    Kevin Rogers, chief executive officer of Paycare, added: “As a health cash plan organisation, we’re passionate about helping individuals access support for services they genuinely need, and we’re humbled to be part of such a vital project which is another step in a positive direction.”

    A well-respected and dedicated not-for-profit health cash plan provider, Paycare has helped individuals, families and businesses across the Black Country and Wolverhampton protect themselves against everyday healthcare costs and bills for over 140 years.

    Cash Converters extend backing

    Cash Converters extend backing

    Motherwell Football Club and Cash Converters UK have renewed their partnership for an eighth consecutive year.

    As part of one of the longest-running partnerships in Scottish football, Cash Converters will continue to have branding around the stadium, including the main apron of the John Hunter stand, which has recently been rebranded.

    The new three-year deal will also see Cash Converters commit to ticket giveaways to help families in the local area to attend home matches.

    “We are delighted to continue the already very successful and positive partnership we’ve enjoyed with Cash Converters,” Motherwell FC’s head of commercial and marketing Suzanne Reid said.

    “Their continued support makes a real difference to the club and the surrounding community. It is fantastic to announce this extended three-year partnership.”

    Cash Converters UK’s head of marketing Michelle Byrne added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to build on an already strong and healthy relationship with Motherwell FC.

    “Our partnership is more than promotion of our brand. It is an opportunity to integrate in and support the Motherwell community, similar to what we have shown with Saint Helens RLFC in England.”

    Two new para-football teams introduced

    Motherwell Football Club have introduced two new para-football teams.

    The new teams will provide opportunities for both physical disability and learning disability athletes.

    They will play in the PAN Para-Football National League, which is open to individuals aged 16-60.

    “This is another part of what Motherwell means to its local community,” Motherwell’s community trust general manager Dawn Middleton said.

    “We want to see that every person feels part of this club. Introducing these new teams shows that they too are part of Motherwell Football Club.”

    The community trust was initially approached in May this year by James Lawrie who, along with two colleagues from Locality Support Services, had set up a disability football team.

    The team has been supported by North Lanarkshire Council and has grown into a large squad of 20 to 25 regular players.

    “It’s brilliant to see developments like, especially from a big club like Motherwell,” North Lanarkshire Provost, Councillor Jean Jones, added.

    “Working so closely with the local community and the council shows it is a real community team.”

    All administration and support will come from Motherwell FC’s community trust, which will provide a coach, strips, access to the minibus and training facilities for the players.

    First team players Charles Dunne and Craig Tanner were present at the launch of the two new teams, passing on tips and support to the squad.

    “It’s positive for the community,” Dunne said. “If you have a disability, it doesn’t matter. Football is still open to you.”
