Scunthorpe United has teamed up with Ongo to offer a new and exciting initiative to their tenants and customers, as part of their commitment to invest in local communities.

As leading organisations in the region, the two have formed a unique partnership bringing opportunities to people of all ages. 

An Ongo zone has been established at the Attis Arena (Scunthorpe United’s stadium, also known as Glanford Park), with the partnership including signage and 50 tickets to every game for the upcoming season.

Promotion of Ongo services to fans will also be a focus, including mental health support and projects to help get people into work and training. 

Initiatives within different areas is set to take place, from chair-based exercise sessions with residents at Myos House (Ongo’s dementia care scheme) to joint activities and education sessions at Ongo’s community centres and large-scale events.

So far, over 100 people have benefitted from the project, attending a Scunthorpe United game and accessing support, and this is something that will only grow with the enhanced partnership for the 2024-25 season.

Kevin Hornsby, Director of Customer Services at Ongo said: “This is a really exciting opportunity for us to strengthen an already great partnership with Scunthorpe United. 

“We know how passionate people are about the club so it’s great we’re able to not only invest in them, but in our tenants and customers too, bringing huge benefits and creating new ways to engage in our services.

“We want to increase the number of opportunities for people to access sport and football related activities, whilst being able to attend games at their local club. 

“Another great part is that we’re able to reach thousands of people through the club’s fan base, making sure as many people as possible know about the support available.

“So far the work we’ve done has gone down a storm and I’m excited to see what more we can do in the future, especially with the new season in mind.” 

Glyn Sparks, Head of Partnerships at Scunthorpe United said: “I am delighted that Ongo has become a club partner. It’s fantastic to have such a large local company support us on and off the pitch.

“The partnership is not only between us and Ongo, but with The Iron Foundation too, so we can deliver even more.”
