Southampton FC Women is offering thousands of free tickets for supporters when Saints compete against Tottenham Hotspur Women in the Conti Cup later this month.
Taking place at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday 18th December, tickets will be available free of charge, giving thousands of football fans and members of the wider community a chance to cheer the team on. The giveaway is being supported by Starling Bank to help the club achieve a record attendance for a women’s game. The record currently stands at 5,145, set at the title-deciding match against Portsmouth in April earlier this year.
As well as enjoying the match, guests will be treated to performances from the Saints Brass band and the club’s resident DJ, with giveaways providing opportunities to win exciting prizes.
The limited free ticket giveaway comes less than a month after the club announced Starling Bank as its official partner for the 2022/23 season, with the bank’s logo now featured on the front of players’ shirts. The sponsorship is a continuation of Starling’s celebration of women’s football, following the bank’s national sponsorship of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
Working with Southampton FC Women, the bank aims to keep the momentum going in women’s football to highlight the glass ceilings that have been smashed for women in sports, technology, and banking.
Southampton FC is on a mission to encourage more fans to support the women’s game and has seen a 120% increase in season ticket sales compared to last season. As part of this drive to grow the women’s game, more Southampton FC Women’s games than ever before are being played at St Mary’s Stadium. So far this season, in the four matches played in SO14, the team has seen average attendance figures of 2,900 with ambitions to continue that growth. The team also trains at Staplewood Campus, the same ground as the men’s side and are now full-time professionals.
Sarah Batters, Director of Marketing and Partnerships at Southampton Football Club, said: “As a club, we are committed to growing the women’s game with Starling Bank’s support. By giving away free tickets for the upcoming women’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, we want to reach a new audience and encourage the public’s ongoing support to ensure the Lionesses’ legacy lives on post-Euros. We hope people will be inspired to come down for a fantastic experience with their family and friends, and that we’ll welcome a record crowd on the day!”
