Newtown AFC introduce a 'football for a fiver' scheme as the cost of living bites
Newtown AFC have introduced a new 'football for a fiver’ scheme where all home games will be charged an admission fee of £5.
In a statement, the club said that:
"We hope this will attract more people through the gate at an affordable rate and in turn raise our average attendance which currently stands at circa 250 spectators. This figure equates to about 2% of the population of Newtown itself."
In an interview conducted with Barry Gardener, the Finance Director for the club, he said:
“For us it is all about getting people into the ground to watch live football. All clubs need to get the admission price correct to attract supporters now and in the future. There is no point having facilities like we have at Latham Park if we can’t get supporters in.
The £2 reduction in admission will hopefully attract more supporters through the gate and make coming to Latham Park an affordable day out as we are also competing against other events and games broadcast on television”
