National Lottery Players Thanked for Covid Support with Free Football Tickets at Lisburn Distillery
Lisburn Distillery joins National Lottery Football Weekends Campaign to Celebrate Local Football Clubs and Communities
National Lottery players across the country, including those from Lisburn are being given the chance to watch their local football teams for free as a thank you for the over £12.5 million of National Lottery funding which helped these community clubs survive when the Covid pandemic struck and football at this level effectively shut down.
The National Lottery Football Weekends campaign will make over 100,000 free admissions available on a ‘Buy One Get One Free’ basis for National Lottery players for selected matches in March and April, including at Lisburn Distillery. It aims to get people out to watch and really get behind their local team, perhaps for the first time, and experience the vital role these clubs play as part of their local community.
Thanks to National Lottery players, during the height of the Covid crisis a total support package of over £12.5 million from The National Lottery was made available and proved vital for many local clubs across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, including Lisburn Distillery to survive the loss of essential matchday revenue as football shut down.
The National Lottery Football Weekends is to thank National Lottery players for stepping up when they were needed the most. The special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ offer will be available to National Lottery players for a game at one of the 231 participating clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The free admission offer (terms apply) will apply to the Lisburn Distillery home match v Banbridge Town which takes place on Saturday 26th March with further information to be released soon.
The campaign will be delivered in partnership with the Vanarama National League, The FA (Football Association), The Scottish FA (Scottish Football Association) FAW (Football Association of Wales) and NIFL (Northern Ireland Football League) and is also backed by well-known ex-footballers Ally McCoist and Karen Carney.
