Preston North End Community and Education Trust are offering a new matchday package to enhance grassroots teams’ experience of visiting Deepdale to watch a game!
The package will allow children to visit Deepdale with their team-mates from their grassroots club, kicking off the day by participating in an hour’s worth of football action at the club’s Community Training Centre at PlayFootball, Ingol.
Following that, the children will head back to Deepdale for a stadium tour, which will include a visit to the dugout, tunnel and even the dressing rooms. The team will also receive a football signed by the Preston North End first team squad!
In addition, children will be provided with food and drink before kick-off.
Each child will receive a copy of the club’s The One And Only matchday programme and a ticket to watch the game. Three adult tickets are also included as part of the package.
The experience is open to children aged six to 12 in a grassroots team and the entire package will cost £395.
You can find a full list of what is included in the package below:
- One hour of indoor football at PlayFootball.
- Pre-match ground tour with visits to the dugout, tunnel and changing rooms.
- One signed football for the team.
- Food, a drink and a programme provided for each child.
- Three adult tickets and 16 child tickets for the match.
If you are interested in bringing your grassroots team to Deepdale for the matchday experience, contact the community department by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org calling 01772 693309, with bookings limited to one team per game. You can reserve your preferred matchday upon payment of a non-refundable £100 deposit.
We are unable to take bookings for September's matches against Brentford, Manchester City and Bristol City, as well as the games against Fulham and Luton Town in December.
Please note that having your team take half-time penalties at Deepdale is not included as part of the matchday experience package.
To avoid disappointment, please aim to make your booking no later than two weeks prior to your requested game. Please also note that we operate on a first come, first serve basis.
We look forward to welcoming plenty of young aspiring footballers to Deepdale throughout the season!
