Following the introduction of a Key Worker rate and a special pricing structure for supporters claiming benefits, the club are now outlining the finer details of our special rates.
Here at Scunthorpe United, we want football to be accessible for all and understand that some supporters have to choose between putting food on the table, the heating on in winter and purchasing clothes for their children which ultimately results in other things falling by the wayside.
Iron COO Lee Turnbull began the season by offering three family tickets to the opening three games for people who unfortunately find themselves on benefits or are struggling at the moment during the current financial climate. One of those supporters taking advantage of the offer, Harry, recently commented: “While the cost-of-living increases, the tickets from Scunthorpe United have helped keep my son's favourite day out and not have to cut back on other things. He suffers from ASD and watching football is the highlight of his week.
“SUFC is a real family club and the stewards in the Family Zone alway say hi to Archie. The club was even gracious enough to let us pick the seats we always book. Thank again and up the Iron!”
We also understand that the nature of a Key Workers’ shift pattern renders a season ticket sometimes unworthy. Additionally, the club want to support and celebrate the work that goes on in these industries, not only during the pandemic, but on a day-by-day basis as well. A number of companies offer discounts to Key Workers, especially through the Blue Light Card, so why should the Iron be different?!
Supporters can take advantage of the concessionary rate for themselves if they fall under either of the categories on production of valid evidence to the ticket office. These rates will be available for every home league game of the 2022-23 season on a match-by-match basis.
These offers are available in-store and over the phone only and are not currently available online. Once any documentation has been provided to our ticket office staff, this will be noted on your account for the 2022-23 season, meaning you won’t have to produce this again to take advantage of the rates.
