Warrington launch ‘donate a ticket’ scheme to support key workers

Warrington have launched a ‘donate a ticket’ scheme that allows fans and the club to give back to key workers.

The scheme allows Warrington fans to log on to the club’s ticketing site and buy a match ticket priced at £15 for a rescheduled game, with the ticket then being donated to key workers who have been working through the coronavirus pandemic.

And the Wolves will also show their appreciation by matching every ticket donated with one for free from the club.

Warrington chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick said: “This period has been extremely difficult for everyone; however, it has seen an increased sense of community spirit across the town.

“We thought it was only right that we said thank you to those going above and beyond within our local NHS, schools and supermarkets, and give everyone something positive to look forward to once the players are able to take to the field at the Halliwell Jones Stadium again.

“The support of the fans will not only give back to key workers, but will also help support the club in the period where games are not being played.”
