Walsall FC are offering free football to under-18s for the 2011-12 season.
Under-18s who sign up by April 2 will be offered a season ticket for £46 and youngsters with the tickets will be given £2 ‘cashback’ at each League game, meaning ‘free’ football if they attend all 23 matches.
Chief executive Stefan Gamble said: “The fans have told us what they want and we have responded by offering free football to youngsters and freezing prices for the third consecutive season. The town’s youngsters are the future of this club and we are trying to do everything we can to get them behind the club. The free ticket offer is a great way to get involved and watch live football in a modern stadium with superb facilities.”
Those prices are only available during the club’s ‘early bird’ promotion, which starts on March 1 and runs until April 2.
The club have also extended the age category in which children can join ‘Swifty’s Squad’, meaning youngsters who are under-12 on August 6, 2011 can attend all home League games for free on a match-by-match basis when accompanied by a full paying adult.
