The WoSFL joins the National Lottery football weekends

The West of Scotland Football League are delighted to be a part of The National Lottery Football Weekends.  If you are a National Lottery player you will be able to come and watch a WoSFL Premier Division match with a friend and get one of the tickets for free.

As fans, you know full well how damaging the pandemic has been to clubs in leagues like ours. With a halt in the football calendar and no gate revenue there were serious fears about the future of many clubs. Thankfully National Lottery players stepped in to protect many local football clubs, providing £12.5million of support to clubs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

As thanks for the essential support, 231 clubs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are now taking part in The National Lottery Football Weekends.  Each club will, for one home fixture in March or April, run a special ‘Buy One Get One Free’ ticket offer for National Lottery players to take someone – potentially for the very first time – to a game.

Speaking about the National Lottery Football weekend league Chair Matt Bamford said –

“National Lottery players play a vital role in supporting our national game, but especially at non-league and grassroots level. The West of Scotland Football League prides itself on having clubs that are closely connected with the local community, and it is thanks to the emergency funding, that ensured their survival, that we are able to continue delivering the projects that make a real difference to their fans and the wider community.

We look forward to welcoming as many fans as possible to our National Lottery football weekend. Why not come and see your first match in the West of Scotland Football League and see how amazing local football is”.
