Chester Football Club and Chester FC Community Trust are delighted to continue our free school season ticket scheme, which has given hundreds of families the opportunity to support the Blues, for the 2023/24 season!
The initiative offers every primary and secondary school in the local area a free family season ticket for for two adults and two children to watch every Vanarama National League North game at the Deva Stadium.
Schools can use the tickets to reward or incentivise pupils, or provide families who might not otherwise be able to attend fixtures, the opportunity to enjoy a day out at a match. The scheme is made possible thanks to the efforts of fans in contributing to the Boost the Budget campaign, helping donate hundreds of child season tickets to the Community Trust.
Feedback from teachers who coordinate the scheme within their schools has been hugely positive.
I just want to take the opportunity to say a massive thank you for the school season ticket initiative this year. As a Chester fan myself, it has been wonderful to see our young children and parents get onboard with this. The experiences offered, have really benefited all our children and it has also reignited some parents’ following of the club again!
