Accrington Stanley, working in partnership with the Accrington Stanley Community Trust, will hand out up to 160 free tickets to Adults and Under-17s for every Sky Bet League Two fixture at the Wham Stadium next season (subject to capacity), valued at more than £90,000 over the 2024/25 campaign.

Local schools will also be involved, with the aim to help people who are usually unable to attend games to get the chance to enjoy an English Football League match, and comes on the back of the club's annual 'big Shirt Giveaway', which sees every Year 3 student in Hyndburn receive a brand new Accrington Stanley shirt.

In September, that initiative will return for the eighth time, meaning over £250,000 has now been invested in the Shirt Giveaway project by Stanley Chairman, Andy Holt.

The Reds have also worked on various other campaigns to get more supporters to the Wham Stadium, including the recent 'Mosque Walk to the Match'.

April's initiative saw over 30 children and adults from Raza Jamia Masjid walk from the mosque to the Wham Stadium, where they then got to watch Stanley's home match against Crewe Alexandra.

Plans are already in place for the next 'Mosque Walk to the Match', which will see other fans joining the walk to the Wham Stadium, with supporters' flags also to be included as part of the spectacle.

Stanley Chairman, Andy Holt, said: "We are delighted to be working with the Community Trust to distribute free tickets for every home game next season.

"As a club we are passionate about reaching people across our community and we want to do whatever we can to make visiting the Wham Stadium more accessible for all.

"We have an exciting season ahead with John and Ged at the helm and through this initiative, we look forward to seeing plenty of new fans at the Wham Stadium over the next few years."
