Free Entry for U12 at Inverness

Defender Callum Fordyce went back to school with other SPFL Championship players yesterday to support an initiative that will see under 12s gain free entry to every Championship match taking place this weekend.

Children under the age of 12 will be permitted free admission to any of the five games taking place tomorrow if they are accompanied by a paying adult, in a move backed by all 10 clubs.  Including our game at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Callum joined pupils at Alexandra Parade Primary School in Glasgow to lend his support to the SPFL scheme. He said: “This is a chance for the Championship to shine in the spotlight and hopefully allowing under 12s in for free this weekend will encourage more families to get along to a game.”

The deal coincides with the Ladbrokes Premiership winter break and is designed to encourage families to attend football matches across the country.

SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “Football goes on even during the Ladbrokes Premiership winter break and I commend the Ladbrokes Championship clubs for coming up with this welcome initiative.  Hopefully many supporters will take the chance to get out to a match, with free admission for under-12s making it more affordable for families to attend together.”
