UPM Raflatac commit to kids go free scheme
Scarborough Athletic FC are delighted to continue the Kids Go Free scheme with major support from UPM Raflatac.
Kids Aged 11 and under are able to attend all home league fixtures for free, when accompanied by a paying adult. This has been made possible with the support of UPM Raflatac who are locally based in Eastfield, with operations internationally.
UPM Raflatac are keen to promote and develop football in the community and undertake football as a recreational activity, encouraging physical activity and team work in young people. By offering young persons the opportunity to watch Scarborough Athletic FC, it is hoped they will engage in both watching and playing football, generating sporting and community activities.
Mick Davison, Match Day Operations Director of Scarborough Athletic FC said “We are thrilled to continue the scheme with the support of UPM Raflatac for another season. The scheme has gone from strength to strength since returning back to Scarborough, with around 10-15% of our support coming from Children aged 11 or under.
The youngsters are the future of our club and this partnership with Raflatac allows us to engage with the next generation of supporters and their families. The new Family Section of the new stand and additional wheelchair provisions will improve the match day experience for families and promote the inclusivity of watching football matches to all.”
Neil Bland, General Manager of UPM Raflatac said "UPM Raflatac is very happy to support the Kids Go Free scheme again this season. As a business we aim to positively engage with and support our local community; this scheme give us a great opportunity to do that.
I know I speak for everyone here at UPM Raflatac Scarborough when I wish Scarborough Athletic FC and it’s supporters the very best for the upcoming season and a very successful and exciting future."
We would like to thank UPM Raflatac for their continued loyal support with the scheme, which continues for what is hoped to be a successful and enjoyable 2019/20 season.« Back to news
