Fans at Mansfield v Gateshead can pay what they want

Tue 2nd Feb 2010 | Marketing & PR

MANSFIELD TOWN are offering a one-off opportunity for the people of Mansfield to pay ANY admission price to watch their home match against Gateshead on Saturday 6 February 2010.

The revolutionary decision was made by the Stags’ four owners as a token of thanks to the people of Mansfield for their support.

People can simply turn up on the day and pay any amount at the turnstile.

The initiative allows spectators to sit anywhere in the stadium (except in Season Ticket Holders’ seats) as the entire ground will be open for the match. 

Season Ticket Holders’ seats will remain reserved and they are advised to bring their season ticket books as usual.

This once-in-a-lifetime offer will also apply to Gateshead supporters.

Chairman Andrew Perry said:  “This is a gesture to the whole town and outlying districts.

“The Town has supported us since the takeover of the club and we are now giving something back to the community by allowing people to come to the match for a price which they decide.

“Spectators will not have to buy tickets, all they have to do is simply turn up on the turnstile and pay what they like.

“We want to make it as easy as possible for the people of Mansfield to get behind the manager and players in our bid for promotion.  Let’s pack the ground for this match and roar the team on to victory.

“Season Ticket holders are also welcome to make a donation if they so wish.

“All monies which have come into this great football club since the start of the season, have gone towards the playing budget.”

The club's Head of Media & Communications Mark Stevenson said:  "We cannot do anymore to attract people to the ground than this - not at this level, anyhow.

"The hope is that people will like what they see and come back.

"We are slowly and surely regaining our place as the cornerstone of the community following years upon years of stagnation under previous ownerships."
