20,000 free season tickets to be distributed to local schools

Throughout January, Barrow Raiders will be distributing 20,000 free season tickets to schools across the local area. 

A successful previous initiative in 2021 saw the club offer thousands of free tickets to every child in South Cumbria. 

We want the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium to be the place to be for every child on a Sunday afternoon.

Do not worry if your child doesn’t receive their season ticket before our opening pre-season friendly at home to North Wales Crusaders – free entry will still be granted.

There are no restrictions on free entry, meaning children are welcome to come with their friends and without adults. 

Barrow Raiders chairman Steve Neale said: “As a club, we have been delighted to see average crowd figures increase over recent years, with more children than ever before coming to watch the Raiders on a matchday.

“We want to create a real buzz around the town and have a stadium full of atmosphere on a Sunday afternoon.

“Because of this, encouraging the next generation of supporters to join us is something that we are really keen to do ahead of the new season.” 

There will be three pre-season friendlies for the Raiders this month, with games to come against North Wales, Workington Town and Wigan Warriors. 

The Raiders’ 2023 Betfred Championship campaign will then begin at home to Toulouse Olympique on Saturday 4 February.
