UNDER 12s can go free to all SPFL Championship matches during the two weekends of the Premiership winter break next month in an initiative supported by all 10 second-tier clubs.

Children under the age of 12 will be permitted free admission to any of the 10 games played in the Ladbrokes Championship on January 6 and January 13 if they are accompanied by a paying adult.


Here at Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC, we already offer free admission for U12s at all home league fixtures in our North Stand.  This will be extended to all areas of the ground for the visit of Queen of the South on the 16th January 2018 and we’ll also be making it available to U12s attending our match on Tuesday 2nd January 2018 when we host Livingston FC at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium.

The move is aimed at encouraging families to get along to a match, even if their favourite top-tier side is not in action.

SPFL Chief Executive Neil Doncaster said: “Football goes on even during the Ladbrokes Premiership winter break and I commend the Ladbrokes Championship clubs for coming up with this welcome initiative.”

“Hopefully many supporters will take the chance to get out to a match next month, with free admission for under-12s making it more affordable for families to attend together.”

Falkirk director Martin Ritchie, one of two Championship representatives on the SPFL Board, added: “With no Premiership fixtures in early January the spotlight will fall on the Ladbrokes Championship for a few weeks.”

“We hope that this offer will encourage fans to take in a game, even if they haven’t been for a while. Matches in this league tend to be exciting and entertaining, and hopefully people, especially families, will take the opportunity to discover that for themselves next month.”

Free U12 tickets for our home matches on the 2nd and 13th January 2018 are available in person from the stadium, either in advance or on the day.
