The campaign, which is being delivered in partnership with the FA, Scottish FA, Football Association of Wales and Northern Ireland Football Association, aims to thank National Lottery players for the £12.5million of funding which supported community clubs like ours throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

This special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer will be available to National Lottery Players to take someone – potentially for the very first time – to a game at any of the 231 participating clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It will see more than 100,000 tickets become available to National Lottery players for selected matches across the UK in March and April, with the intention of encouraging people to get behind their local team and experience the vital role these clubs play in their local community.
