Sheffield Wednesday Grassroots Community Scheme The Sheffield Wednesday Grassroots Community Scheme is a new initiative launched by the club to make the youngsters of today supporters of tomorrow by offering money can’t buy experiences on the Hillsborough pitch.
The scheme is available to all junior sports teams, schoolchildren and youth groups based across Sheffield and South Yorkshire and offers significant benefits including discounted match tickets, participation in one of four great matchday activities and a special cashback incentive to each group based on tickets sold.
We have designed the Grassroots Community Scheme to be as accessible to as many people as possible, which is reflected by the offer of heavily discounted match tickets for every game.
Junior participants can watch the Owls in the Championship for just £5 while adults pay just £20. These prices are fixed regardless of what the individual Match Category may be.
Please note that only 1,000 tickets are available for any given game therefore book your preferred game as soon as you can!
FOUR GREAT MATCHDAY ACTIVITIES FOR JUNIORS
We have four great money can’t buy on the pitch activities in which juniors can participate:
Guard of Honour
Up to 20 juniors will form a guard of honour and wave flags to welcome the teams on to the pitch.
Up to seven lucky juniors will get the chance to walk out of the tunnel with the players on to the Hillsborough pitch and take part in the pre-match handshakes.
Shake the Shirt
Up to 40 juniors will have the opportunity to stand on the Hillsborough centre circle and shake the giant SWFC shirt in the build-up to kick-off.
Half time Team Parade
All Juniors attending will have the opportunity to walk around the perimeter of the Hillsborough pitch, waving at and being greeted by the 20,000+ crowd.
We understand that Junior Clubs and School Teams are reliant on funds to enable the team to continue to operate from season to season. We are therefore delighted to support our junior participants by offering CASHBACK through the Grassroots Community Scheme:
For each junior ticket sold, the Group will receive £1 cashback
For each adult ticket sold, the Group will receive £5 cashback
Example: Bring 100 juniors and 25 adults on your chosen matchday and you will receive £225 cashback directly to your club
