Unique value-based match packages go on sale for 2021

Sligo Rovers can today announce ticketing information for the 2021 season, providing unique value and based on trying to guarantee supporters being able to use tickets in The Showgrounds.

The club recently wrote to our supporters offering refunds on 2020 tickets.

The loyalty of our supporters was shown when not one season ticket holder applied for a refund of any sort, and we sincerely thank them for that.

We will now introduce a new ticketing system which will be similar to our traditional season tickets, which are always a popular Christmas present for Sligo Rovers supporters at this time of year.

The system is based on offering value and a view point for our fans returning to The Showgrounds, as well supporting local businesses.

We are releasing a 12-match ticketing system, where supporters can buy 12 tickets to our 2021 SSE Airtricity League matches and can redeem them based on numbers allowed attend these fixtures.

If at the end of 2021 you have not used all your match tickets, we will carry those remaining tickets forward to the 2022 season to then be used.

The categories are as follows:

–          Adult 12 Match Ticket Pack (€150)Click here to purchase

–          Elderly/Concession/3rd Level Student 12 Match Ticket pack (€100)Click here to purchase

–          Super Red and Secondary school 12 Match Ticket pack (€55)Click here to purchase

We are aware that, realistically, our supporters will not all be able to attend every home fixture next season, given that limited attendances due to Covid-19 restrictions are expected to remain in place in the coming months.

The club have also teamed up with some local businesses in Sligo to reward our fans.

We are giving a booklet of discount vouchers for a number of businesses in Sligo to every supporter who purchases a 2021 season match pack. These discounts equal the cost of the match packages.

This will act as a way of creating business for some of our local sponsors and helping them through their most challenging times and allow our supporters to get the best of Sligo retail. It is a vital time to support our business community.

The booklet includes six vouchers, from local businesses The Clayton Hotel, EJ Menswear, Pet Stop Discount Warehouse, Wehrly’s Jewellers, The Riverside Hotel and The Belfry Bar/Embassy Steakhouse.

Our popular Super Red package will again contain a special package for our youngest supporters, including exciting new academy training sessions with the club’s new Head of Academy and club coaches.

If supporters use up their 12 match tickets before the season ends, and the club have further league fixtures remaining in the season, supporters may be permitted to purchase individual match tickets, if restrictions on numbers allow.

Those who have purchased these match packs will be given priority in purchasing any further match tickets or tickets for European matches and cup competitions.

If the attendance permitted to any game is less than the amount of tickets sold, an open draw will be conducted to determine who can attend the fixture. Those who miss out on certain games can use them in 2021.

If the attendance permitted to any game is greater than the amount of match pack tickets sold, the club will then issue a number of individual match tickets for each fixture for general sale.

We are aware that this is a unique ticketing system, however, we feel it is a much more reasonable way of asking our most dedicated supporters to purchase a traditional season ticket, rather than putting a standard season ticket for sale for the usual 18 home game season, taking into account the probable cap on attendances, especially in the early parts of 2021.

We want to thank our sponsors and supporters for their continued support of Sligo Rovers FC.

Tickets are available to purchase here now or in the club store in Barton Smith’s, as well as The Showgrounds.
