Player Appearance Policy

Player Appearance Policy

Preston North End is regularly inundated with requests for player appearances - the club is committed to supporting community events and charities in the region and will facilitate player appearances whenever practically possible.

Preston North End Community and Education Trust is responsible for arranging and accompanying our first team squad on visits into the community - however, due to the amount of requests we receive for player appearances, we are unable to fulfil all requests.

As a result, please ensure you read our Player Appearance Policy below before submitting your request and maximising your chances of success. Failure to do so will automatically mean your request is denied.

Player Appearance Criteria

  • Only requests via letter or email will be considered. Verbal requests will not be taken into consideration.
  • Four weeks' notice is required to facilitate a player request.
  • No appearances will be considered on matchdays, 24 hours preceding a match, 24 hours after a game or on team travel days.
  • No appearances will be considered while players are on annual leave (from the date of the last game of the season until they return for pre-season training).
  • Players will only attend events within a 15-mile radius of Deepdale Stadium and with a maximum duration of one hour.
  • Players cannot take part in any activities with risk of injury.
  • The event must not be centred on the player's attendance and must have a separate purpose.
  • If your request is successful, we will aim to confirm the name of player(s) attending in the week prior to the event. We are unable to confirm names any sooner as changes can occur - these can continue to occur right up until the date of your request meaning changes remain probable in some cases.
  • All player appearances are subject to change. If an event has to be rescheduled and the original player can no longer attend, then an alternative player will be provided where possible. Please be aware that it is possible that due to unforeseen circumstances that a player or representative from Preston North End may not be able to make the appearance as previously agreed. PNECET will make every effort to prevent this from occurring.
  • Contact will be made with the event organiser and a brief prepared regarding the purpose of the appearance to ensure the player is fully aware of their role.

*Please note that in-person player appearances continue to be subject to social restrictions imposed in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic, which may require players to maintain a two-metre social distance and wear a face covering while making a public appearance.

To request a player appearance or to find out more information about our player appearance policy, please contact Preston North End Community and Education Trust via email -
